Caught on video: Driver flees after man killed in hit-and-run on Olney street, police say

Neighbors in Olney are shaken after a deadly hit-and-run early Sunday morning that claimed the life of a 47-year-old man, and sparked a search for the driver.

The victim was standing outside a double-parked car when he was fatally struck by a vehicle that just kept driving on North Mascher Street around 2 a.m. Sunday., according to authorities.

Police released surveillance footage they say captured the suspected vehicle after the deadly crash. 

They are looking for a white or silver Lexus SUV with possible damage to the bumper, grill, hood and windshield.


"It was kind of scary. The victim was right here," resident Daryca Heinze said. "I looked in my window and I saw the police and then I was confused on what happened because it was so early in the morning."

Alex Cortez says people surrounded the victim, trying to revive him, but police say he died a short time later at Einstein Medical Center.

Neighbors say drivers treat their street like a speedway.

"We live around here. We want to be safe," resident Samantha Phy said.

"I hope they’re caught. I hope they have sense enough to turn themselves in. To do the right thing," resident Candy added.

No arrests have been made, and an investigation is underway.
