(OAKWOOD, MD) – After completion of the autopsy and through information developed during the continuing investigation, it has been determined the injuries sustained by a Harford County man found dead along Route 1 last Friday are consistent with being struck by a vehicle.
Based on evidence observed by doctors at the office of the Chief Medical Examiner’s Office and the continuing efforts of the Maryland State Police, it has been determined that the injuries sustained by Mark T. Grubbs of Pylesville, MD were sustained after being struck by a vehicle in the area of Sweeny’s Bar located in the 100-block of Conowingo Road, Conowingo, MD on July 5, 2013.
