Nearly two weeks after the accident, Anne Arundel County police officers continue to search for the woman driving the car that struck and killed Baltimore resident Alex Hernandez.

Anne Arundel County Police released a composite sketch of the woman they believe was driving the car that struck a Baltimore man as he rode his bicycle and fled the scene July 14 in Brooklyn Park.

Kuddos to the person who gave this description. It's very suspicous to me as to why she would get out, look and DRIVE OFF?
