June 17th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

Investigators from the Maryland State Police Crash team continue to investigate a fatal hit and run on I-695 last night. The deceased is identified as Khary Tier Williams, 46, of Milford Mill, Maryland. Williams was the operator of a 2008 Suzuki motorcycle. He was pronounced deceased on the scene by emergency medical service personnel.


At 11:45 p.m. last night, troopers at the Golden Ring Barrack were dispatched to a hit and run crash in Baltimore County on the outer loop of I-695 at the I-70 exit where lanes one and two were closed for paving. The preliminary investigation indicates a dump truck was pulling out of the active work zone at the time the incident occurred.  Police believe the driver of the motorcycle laid the motorcycle down to avoid hitting the dump truck and was subsequently struck.


The driver of the dump truck failed to remain at the scene.  The identity of the driver is under investigation.


Maryland State Police from the Golden Ring Barrack responded to the crash along with investigators from the Crash team. Officers from the Baltimore County Police Department and Baltimore County Fire Department personnel also responded to the scene to assist. Personnel from the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration assisted with road closures and detours.


The investigation continues..

Maryland State Police are actively investigating a pedestrian fatal that occurred early this morning in Montgomery County.


The deceased is identified as Jerasimos Ray Blanton, 33, of Rockville. Investigators believe Blanton was the driver of a 2015 Ford Explorer at the time of the incident. Emergency medical service personnel declared him deceased at the scene prior to being transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for autopsy. 


The other vehicle involved is a 2018 Freightliner flatbed truck.  The driver of the flatbed truck remained on the scene and is cooperating with investigators. He was uninjured during the incident.


Shortly before 5:30 a.m. this morning, troopers from the Rockville Barrack responded to the report of a crash at northbound I-270, north of Shady Grove Road. Upon their arrival, troopers found an unattended 2015 Ford Explorer elevated on a jack with extensive damage to the left side of the vehicle, on the right shoulder of the highway.  A 2018 Freightliner flatbed truck was stopped further north on the right side of the road.


The preliminary investigation indicates the Ford Explorer was traveling northbound I-270, north of Shady Grove Road when for reasons unknown at this time, it struck the concrete median. Investigators believe the impact may have caused the left front tire to deflate before the vehicle came to rest on the right shoulder of the highway. 


Police believe the driver jacked up the vehicle in an attempt to change the deflated tire.  For unknown reasons at this time, investigators believe the driver was attempting to cross the northbound lanes of I-270 when he was struck by the Freightliner truck.
