SALISBURY, Md. - A Salisbury man has been arrested for a hit and run that police say left a pedestrian seriously injured.

According to Salisbury police, officers were called to the 600 block of South Salisbury Boulevard on Sunday around 1:30 a.m. for a reported hit and run involving a pedestrian. When they arrived, police said they found a 21-year-old man lying in the road unresponsive. The victim was initially taken to PRMC for treatment and then transferred to Shock Trauma in Baltimore due to the severity of his unspecified injuries.

Police said further investigation showed the victim was attempting to cross the northbound lanes of South Salisbury Boulevard in the area of North Boulevard when he was hit. An on-duty Maryland state trooper from the Salisbury Barrack reported seeing a dark green Honda Accord in the area with one headlight out. According to police, the trooper made contact with the driver of that car, 23-year-old Devonta Walker of Salisbury, and noticed significant damage to the front end and windshield of his car.

Salisbury police said they met with the state trooper and Walker and noticed more evidence that linked that car to the crash, resulting in Walker's arrest.

Walker is currently being held at the Wicomico County Detention Center while he waits for an initial court appearance. He is charged with failure to stop a vehicle at the scene of a bodily injury accident, failure to immediately return and remain at an accident involving bodily injury and failure of driver to render reasonable assistance to an injured person.

Police are continuing to investigate the crash and are asking that anyone who may have been traveling in this particular area at approximately 1:30 a.m. to 1:45 a.m. on Sept. 18 to contact Crime Solvers of the Lower Eastern Shore at (410) 548-1776 or the Salisbury Police Department Criminal Investigation Division at (410) 548-3113.
