Dr. Nadia Dominique Morgan, a 35-year-old doctor at Johns Hopkins University, was tragically killed in a hit-and-run automobile accident on the night of Saturday, December 15.
According to reports Dr. Morgan, who was an award-winning rheumatologist at the university, was killed in a three-vehicle hit-and-run in Baltimore, Maryland.
The Baltimore County Police department said that Dr. Morgan, who was driving her 2016 Subaru Crosstrek, was heading through an intersection when she was struck by a 2006 Acura TSX. The impact sent her flying it into a third vehicle and she was pronounced dead at the scene.
Following the hit-and-run, 31-year-old male Jason William Hines was later arrested by Baltimore County Police officials. Additionally, authorities stated that Hines crashed into a fire hydrant and fled the scene on foot as Morgan’s car became engulfed in flames.
Hines lives on the 200 block of Joppa Road in Baltimore, Maryland.
Morgan, who lived in the 1000 block of Park Ave., near the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore, had been driving a 2016 Subaru Crosstrek south on Falls Road through a green light in the intersection, when a 2006 Acura TSX headed east on Green Spring Valley Road struck her car, forcing it into a third vehicle, which also was headed south, police said.
Morgan was pronounced dead at the scene by Baltimore County Fire Department medics, police said. As the Subaru became engulfed in flames, the driver of the Acura TSX crashed into a fire hydrant and left the scene on foot, only to be arrested later, police said.
Authorities took Hines to the Baltimore County Department of Corrections, where he is being held without bail. At the time of this writing, it is unclear if Hines has hired a lawyer.
At this time, the Baltimore County police department is currently investigating the crash and is asking anyone who may have information to call 410-307-2020.
