ROSEDALE, Md. — Maryland State Police are investigating a hit-and-run crash that killed a 17-year-old girl and injured another in Baltimore County.

Shortly after 4:20 a.m. on Thursday, troopers received two calls about a disabled vehicle in the center lane of the I-695 inner loop between I-95 and Philadelphia Road in Rosedale.

Police say two motorists were standing outside in front of their disabled vehicle, when the suspect's car swerved and struck them before fleeing the scene.

One of the victims, 17-year-old Amira Geovoni Jennings, of Baltimore, died on scene.

The other victim, an 18-year-old man, was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. His condition is unclear.

Investigators have used car parts left at the scene to narrow the suspect's vehicle down to a dark gray Infiniti , possibly a G37, G25 or Q40 model between the years of 2009 and 2015.

The road was closed until about 7 a.m. as a result of the crash.

Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call the Maryland State Police Golden Ring Barrack at 410-780-2700.
