MSP searching for suspect involved in hit and run collision in Willards

Possible suspect vehicle model

WILLARDS, Md. – Maryland State Police are asking for the public’s help in locating a suspect involved in a hit and run crash that took place in Willards last weekend.

The crash happened shortly before 7 PM on Saturday, December 2nd, in the area of Main Street and Old Ocean City Road.

On arrival, troopers located a black 2018 Toyota Avalon that had been hit on the passenger side, rotated clockwise, and came to rest on the eastbound shoulder of Old Ocean City Road.

Police say that both the driver and passenger were evaluated on scene by medical personnel from the Willards Fire Department, and refused medical treatment. They were both under the age of eighteen.

A witness on scene of the crash told police that they were behind a small vehicle traveling north on Main Street just before the incident occurred. The vehicle reportedly stopped at the intersection and then proceeded through and hit the Toyota that was traveling east on Old Ocean City Road. The vehicle then continued driving north on Main Street and did not return to the scene.

Evidence found at the scene suggests that the suspect vehicle is a 2016 to 2018 Honda Civic LX model, possibly either two or four door. The witness also reported to police that the car may have possibly been dark red in color.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact S/Tpr. Kevin Moore at the Maryland State Police Salisbury Barrack.
