OCEAN CITY, Md.- Worcester County sheriff's deputies say they have located and identified a person of interest with last Saturday night's hit-and-run crash involving a pedestrian.

Police have not yet provided the name of the person of interest but say more information will be released at a future time.

The incident in question occurred at around at around 5:45 p.m. Saturday on Stephen Decatur Highway in the area of the Frontiertown Campground.

Deputies found the victim who had been able to get himself off the roadway and call 911. The victim told police that he was walking north on the shoulder of Stephen Decatur Highway when he was hit from behind by a vehicle.  

The victim was unable to provide any further information on the vehicle except that it continued north.

Police said that there were no witnesses to the accident. From evidence recovered at the scene, deputies were able to determine the suspect vehicle to be a dark red GM passenger car that has a missing passenger side mirror and possible passenger side damage.
