HIT & RUN | 'They just hit her and kept going. What kind of person does that?'
BALTIMORE (WBFF) - A 72-year-old woman, walking to a bus stop while on her way to work, is dead. Doris Blackmon is the victim of a hit-and-run in northeast Baltimore. Police have released a picture of the SUV that struck and killed the woman.
Dale Blackmon stood on his front porch Tuesday evening with a tearful plea to the public—help find the killer of his mother.
"Tell me, I don't understand. What kind of person would do that," said Blackmon
Someone struck Blackmon’s mother on Bel Air Road near Elmley Avenue just after 5 o’clock Tuesday morning. It happened just a few feet away from where she lived.
"They didn't even stop, they didn't even slow down. He hit her and kept going."
"What kind of person does that,” Blackmon asked, fighting back tears.
Blackmon said his mother had been walking to that bus stop near her home for the past 30 years. She’d catch the bus to her job at the Social Security Administration. That was her routine early Tuesday morning, when her familiar journey turned tragic.
Investigators believe a Honda Passport SUV hit Blackmon. Police have released an image of the vehicle captured by a city camera. Investigators believe the SUV was damaged during the incident—a crash that killed a mother.
"It could be their mother. This person needs to be brought to justice. This person needs to be found and held accountable, just like anybody else," said Blackmon.
Crash Team detectives are investigating this incident and are asking for anyone with information to contact them at 410-396-2608 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
