Baltimore County police officials have released the identity of the 9-year-old girl killed Wednesday in a pedestrian-involved crash in Hawthorne.
Amaria Gould of the 2100 block of Graythorn Road was pronounced dead at the Johns Hopkins Pediatric Trauma Center, where she was flown with life-threatening injuries after the crash, according to police officials.
At 5:26 p.m. May 1, police and fire personnel responded to a call about a pedestrian struck by a car at the intersection of Graythorn and Grovethorn roads in the Hawthorne community of Middle River.
The preliminary crash investigation shows that a 2010 Dodge Charger, driven by a 20-year-old Middle River woman, was traveling southbound on Graythorn Road.
The victim entered the street from between two parked cars and crossed in front of the Charger, which then struck the child, according to Cpl. Cathy Batton, a spokeswoman for the police department.
The child was taken by Maryland State Police helicopter to Johns Hopkins, where she was pronounced dead.
The driver of the Charger remained on the scene and no citations have been issued, according to Batton.
