Pedestrian dead after being struck by hit-and-run driver on ICC

A pedestrian died after a driver struck the man on the westbound Intercounty Connector and then left the scene early Tuesday.

The Maryland Transportation Authority police said police are looking for a silver or gray vehicle with front-end damage. Anyone with information about the vehicle or crash is asked to call 410-537-6905.

All lanes of westbound Md. 200/Intercounty Connector were shut down before Georgia Avenue for nearly five hours as police investigated the 3:30 a.m. traffic death. Traffic was diverted to Layhill Road.

The identity of the man killed has not been released, pending notification of next of kin.
