March 31--A Frederick woman who fled after crashing into a county bus Wednesday morning faced several traffic violations after being released from the hospital, police said.
Dayshia Ayanna Disney Baltimore, 22, was driving east in the 1100 block of Key Parkway at about 7:30 a.m. when she looked down to change the radio station and struck a Frederick County TransIT bus that had stopped to pick up special-needs passengers, said Cpl. Amanda Ensor, a sheriff's office spokeswoman. The air bag in Baltimore's vehicle deployed, and one of the bus's three passengers had minor injuries, Ensor said.
"[Baltimore] approached the TransIT operator in the bus after the crash and said, 'I'm sorry' and 'I'll be right back,' but then she ran away," Ensor said.
Frederick police tried to find Baltimore using a K-9 unit, but were not successful, Ensor said. Because the crash involved a county bus, sheriff's deputies took over the investigation and eventually identified Baltimore, Ensor said.
Baltimore and the injured occupant of the bus were treated at Frederick Memorial Hospital and released, Ensor said.
Baltimore was charged with failing to avoid a collision, driving without a license, failing to remain at the scene of a collision involving bodily injury/vehicle damage and failing to render reasonable aid, Ensor said.
