(BALTIMORE, MD) – Investigators from the Maryland State Police Crash team continue to investigate a fatal hit and run on I-695 last night.
The deceased is identified as Khary Tier Williams, 46, of Milford Mill, Maryland. Williams was the operator of a 2008 Suzuki motorcycle. He was pronounced deceased on the scene by emergency medical service personnel.
