EDGEWOOD, Md. — Police have arrested the driver allegedly involved in a deadly hit and run in Edgewood on Monday.

Anthony Lee Wilson, 27, is accused of running over a 31-year-old man who was walking near the shoulder of Pulaski Highway and Reeds Run Road.

Police say Wilson failed to remain at the scene prompting a search for his car, a 2019 Nissan Versa.

After identifying Wilson as the potential driver, troopers were able to get in touch and have him come to their Bel Air barrack where he was placed under arrest.

The victim was flown by helicopter to Shock Trauma, where he later died.

Wilson is being held without bail, on charges of negligent manslaughter by vehicle and criminal negligent manslaughter by vehicle.
