Just before 3:30 p.m. on May 15 Baltimore County Police responded to a pedestrian-involved crash at Pulaski Highway and Rossville Boulevard, 21237 in the White Marsh Precinct. 

The preliminary investigation shows that the pedestrian, 44-year-old George Galen Nelson, III, with no fixed address, was struck by a 2006 Ford E250 van which was traveling west on Pulaski Highway. Nelson was struck when he entered the path of the van, which remained at the scene. This intersection does not have a crosswalk or a pedestrian signal. 

The pedestrian was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, where he was later pronounced deceased. The investigation is on-going at this time, conducted by the Baltimore County Crash Investigation Team.

A man who fled from Baltimore County and Baltimore City Police in a stolen vehicle is under arrest this afternoon.

Our Regional Auto Theft Taskforce (RATT Squad, which includes officers from both Baltimore County and Baltimore City as well as officers from other surrounding jurisdictions) attempted to stop a vehicle early this afternoon after patrol officers from the White Marsh Precinct notified them that they were following a vehicle with verified stolen license plate tags. Air support took over when the officers attempted to make a traffic stop on the vehicle but it began to flee erratically on Pulaski Highway into Baltimore City.

Air support kept RATT units from Baltimore County and Baltimore City updated on the location of the vehicle as it continued to drive recklessly through Baltimore City, where the driver struck two parked cars and fled the vehicle on foot. Baltimore City RATT units arrived on the scene, located and caught up to the fleeing suspect, and were able to stop and apprehend him. Detectives determined that the vehicle was reported stolen out of Baltimore City and the tags were also reported stolen from a different vehicle in Baltimore City.

The uncooperative suspect was transported back to Baltimore County for charging. He is not yet identified but is described as an adult male. Further information will be provided once he is positively identified.

Baltimore County Police continue to investigate a fatal pedestrian-involved crash in White Marsh last night.

Police were called to the scene around 9:20 p.m. after a man attempted to cross eastbound Pulaski Highway west of Stevens Road, stepping in front of a truck traveling eastbound in the left lane. The man, identified as Ronald Kevin Hardin (49) of the 2400 block of Highway 590 East in Seminary, Mississippi, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver of the truck remained at the scene.

The Baltimore County Police Crash Investigation Team continues to investigate this crash.
