BALTIMORE — Police are hoping to find witnesses of a late April accident in Southwest Baltimore that has since proven deadly.

Hebert Hemby, 64, was struck while trying to cross a street in Lower Edmondson Village, police said. His injuries were originally considered to not be life-threatening, but on May 14, Hemby died, with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner saying Hemby succumbed to the injuries sustained when he was struck.

Police were called to the intersection of Edmondson Avenue and North Hilton Street at about 1:37 p.m. on April 24 for a report of a pedestrian involved accident. There, police found Hemby injured. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

Investigators determined Hemby was trying to cross Edmondson Avenue when he was struck by a 2006 Infiniti sedan driven by a 22-year-old woman who remained on the seen and cooperated with police.

Detectives ask anyone who may have seen the crash on April 24 or who knows about it to contact them at 410-396-8557.
