Police looking for car driver that caused semi to jackknife before fleeing scene


Officers are asking the public for help in finding the owner of a sedan that caused a tractor trailer to jackknife and suffer significant damage.

The incident happened on northbound Interstate 295 Northbound around 10 A.M. in Baltimore, Maryland, on Friday, October 14th.

In a Facebook post, fellow truck driver Erika Wilson wrote the following description, asking for the public’s assistance:

Please share! With consent from the owner I am sharing this post and ask the public to share too in hopes that the person that caused this accident will come forward or if anyone knows anything to report the information to the Maryland Transportation Authority, Officer Kellam. Local: (410) 537-1000.

Approximately 10:00 AM yesterday morning on 295 North Bound at the 895 exit, Baltimore MD an individual driving a blue, 4 door (newer body style) sedan began to pass this tractor trailer at a high rate of speed in an attempt to make the 895 exit. The car made contact with the bumper/fender of the tractor causing the tractor driver to make every effort to avoid running over the vehicle.

The driver of the car stopped, got out of the car, looked at the damage and then got back in the car, sped off and fled the scene. There is damage to the right side of the car.

It’s a sad world we live in that as a human being we lack the compassion to help our fellow man in time of need. Own up to your mistake and remember that the last thought of the truck driver was to do everything in his power to prevent seriously injuring you.

If you have any information about the incident, or are able to identify the car driver involved, please contact Officer Kellam of the Maryland Transportation Authority at (410) 537-1000.
