by Robert Lee Simmons, 31, of Baltimore, police reported.
An ambulance took Simmons to Union Hospital in Elkton for treatment of what investigators described as “minor injuries,”
Owens, however, had walked away from the crash scene and was last seen heading toward Hilltop Road, police added, noting that investigators had identified him as the “at-fault” driver in the collision.
He appeared to have been returning to the crash scene when he was fatally struck by a sport utility vehicle, after jumping from a truck onto the eastbound lane of
Telegraph Road, police noted.
“Owens received a ride in the bed of a Ford F-150, which was traveling eastbound back towards the area of the head-on collision when, for unknown reasons, Owens climbed out of the vehicle,” an MSP spokesman explained.
After climbing out the bed of the pickup truck on Telegraph Road, Owens was struck near Hilltop Road by an eastbound
2015 Kia Sorrento driven by Louise Smith, 71, of New Castle, Del., according to police. Smith was not injured, police reported. A MSP crash reconstruction team conducted an on-scene investigation, which forced emergency workers to close a portion of Telegraph Road for more than an hour.
As of Thursday, the fatal crash investigation continued.
