Posted: Updated:

BERLIN, Md.- Maryland State Police have released the name of a man killed in a hit-and-run crash in Worcester County. 

Troopers on Monday identified the victim as 49-year-old Carlos Enrique Morales Barrios, of the 200 block of South Philadelphia Avenue in Ocean City. Emergency medical personnel pronounced him deceased at the scene.

Police said that at around noon Friday, Nov. 11, a motorist called 9-1-1 to report that he had stopped to investigate what he thought was a dead deer lying in a grassy ravine between Maryland Route 707 and Route 50 in Worcester County. Upon his discovery of a man's body, he called state police at the Berlin Barrack. Troopers responded to the scene and initiated a death investigation.

Due to the physical evidence and debris left at the scene, police believed injuries to the victim were the result of a hit-and-run crash. 

Police continue the investigation into this incident and ask any witnesses with relevant information to contact the Berlin Barrack at 410-641-3101. The Lower Eastern Shore Crime Solvers at 410-548-1776 is offering up to $1,000 for any information leading to an arrest for the person responsible for this crime.
