Suspect arrested in Thursday evening hit and run incident

SALISBURY, Md. – A hit and run incident led to the arrest of a Salisbury man Thursday evening.

Police say that around 8 PM, a deputy from the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office responded to a reported hit and run collision on Walnut Tree Road in Salisbury. The complainant told police that she was at the stop sign on Walnut Tree Road when a vehicle operated by 56-year-old Marlin Moffit turned onto Walnut Tree Road from Allen Road and struck the complainant’s vehicle.

Moffit then reportedly got out of his vehicle, looked at the damage, and then drove away without providing his information. A witness followed Moffit to his residence, leading the deputy to locate Moffit and his wrecked vehicle.

It was also learned that Moffit’s license had previously been suspended and revoked by the State of Maryland.

Moffit was placed under arrest and charged with leaving the scene of an accident, driving while suspended, driving while revoked, reckless driving, and negligent driving. He was later released on an unsecured bond.
