COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Authorities in Maryland say a semitruck driver who fatally stuck a pedestrian alongside Interstate 95 and fled the scene has been found in North Carolina.

Maryland State Police told news outlets Tuesday that the driver isn’t being identified at this time. Police say charges are being reviewed by the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney.

Troopers responded to a 911 call on Nov. 21 from a witness stating they found a woman’s body on the northbound side of I-95.

Investigators say that based on debris found at the scene, the woman was hit by a Freightliner Cascadia truck whose driver continued north.

The woman was later identified as 22-year-old Lourdina Hyppolite of Beltsville, Md.

Police say tips from witnesses led them to the truck in Greensboro, N.C.

The investigation is ongoing.
