From Maryland State Police:
Maryland State Police served a Harford County Grand Jury indictment late this afternoon and arrested the driver they believe struck and killed a Harford County man in March of this year as he walked behind a snow blower near his home.
The accused is identified as Kenneth S. Borys, 24, of the 300-block of Locust Lane, Bel Air, Md. He is charged with: failure to stop vehicle and remain at the scene of a collision, failure to immediately stop vehicle at scene, failure of driver involved in accident to render aid, failure to stop after accident involving damage, and failure to stop vehicle and remain at scene of accident involving bodily injury. Borys was transported to the Harford County Intake Processing Center where he was held on a pre-set bond of $20,000.
Evidence developed during an extensive investigation by the Maryland State Police Criminal Enforcement Division Northern Region and the hired personal injury attorney was presented to a Harford County Grand Jury last week convened by Harford County State’s Attorney Joe Cassilly. The Grand Jury indictment was received today by Maryland State Police. Troopers served the indictment on Borys at his home at about 4:30 p.m. today. He was arrested without incident.
Borys is charged in connection with a hit and run fatal crash on March 5, 2015. The crash resulted in the death of Christian J. Widomsky, 44, who lived in the 2800-block of Harford Road, Fallston.
At about 7:00 p.m. on March 5, 2015, Maryland State Police at the Bel Air Barrack were dispatched to the 2800-block of Harford Road for the report of a hit and run crash. Investigating troopers learned the victim had borrowed his neighbor’s snow blower. He was walking along the shoulder of Harford Road back to his house behind the snow blower.
Witnesses said a Jeep Cherokee was northbound on Harford Road approaching the victim from behind. Troopers were told the driver of the Jeep appeared to lose control and the vehicle struck the victim from behind. After striking the victim, the Jeep Cherokee did not stop and continued north on Harford Road toward Rt. 152.
State Police investigators spent hundreds of hours conducting interviews, searching for evidence, investigating hundreds of leads called in by citizens and collecting and reviewing security camera tapes from businesses along Harford Road. Diligent police work led to troopers locating the Jeep and identifying the accused as a suspect. Troopers worked in coordination with the Harford County State’s Attorney’s Office throughout the investigation.
