WALDORF, Md. — The Office of the Attorney General has released dashboard camera footage from a fatal police pursuit on March 11 in Charles County.
According to officials, a hit and run suspect died in a crash while reportedly fleeing from police in Waldorf.
The incident happened just after 4 a.m. when Charles County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the 3900 block of Pine Cone Circle for a crash.
By the time they got there, the driver had already left the scene. A witness gave police the driver's name and around 40 minutes later deputies saw the driver, identified as 50-year-old Darell Byrd, in the area of St. Marks Drive and tried pulling him over.
He refused and led police on a pursuit along St. Charles Parkway. Byrd quickly lost control of his truck and crashed.
