October 29th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

      On October 28, 2020 at approximately 5:17 P.M., Trooper’s from the Maryland State Police McHenry Barrack responded to 145 Bumble Bee Road for a reported hit and run motor vehicle collision involving a pedestrian. Upon arrival Trooper’s observed a male identified as Henry Sines, 28, of McHenry, Maryland suffering from serious injuries sustained from the collision. Aid was rendered to Sines by paramedics and Sines was transported by ambulance to Ruby Memorial Hospital for treatment of his injuries.

    The investigation revealed Timothy Ross, 39, of Friendsville, Maryland was operating a white cargo van and Debbie Lancaster, 52, of Friendsville, Maryland was the suspected passenger. Ross had driven the van to 145 Bumble Bee Road for a suspected CDS transaction between him and the victim. Sines was standing at the driver’s side window of the van when the suspected CDS transaction was interrupted. Ross fled the scene with Sines grabbing the door of the van causing him to be pulled alongside the van as it exited onto Bumble Bee Road. Sines then fell down, and was subsequently ran over by Ross. Ross did not stop and fled north on Bumble Bee Road.

    Troopers later located the suspect vehicle along with Ross and Lancaster in Friendsville. Lancaster was found to be in possession of CDS and was taken before the Garrett County District Court Commissioner on charges of possession of CDS not marijuana, and possession of CDS paraphernalia where she was released on her own recognizance. Ross was transported to Garrett Regional Medical Center for treatment of injuries obtained from a separate motor vehicle accident and charges are pending.
