TOWSON, Md. (WMAR) — Baltimore County Police are searching for the driver responsible for hitting a pedestrian and then taking off on New Years Eve.

Just before 7:30 on Tuesday night, officers responded to the intersection of Dulaney Valley Road and Fairmount Avenue, the corner of Towson Town Center, for a man hit by a car.

He was taken to the hospital and is still in critical condition.

Officials said the suspect left the scene without stopping. The car has been described as a dark colored, full sized, four door pick-up truck, possibly with a tool box or bed cover on the back of the truck.

"It's a very busy intersection that leads into downtown Towson so we are certain that somebody had to see something on New Years Eve. At 7:30, it's pretty dark at that point but a heavily traveled intersection so we think somebody saw something," said Cpl. Shawn Vinson.

Police are asking anyone with information is asked to contact the Baltimore County Police Crash Team by calling 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous.
