MARYLAND, Unites States (AP) — US authorities say an award-winning Johns Hopkins rheumatologist from Jamaica was killed in a hit-and-run involving three vehicles in Maryland.

Citing a Baltimore County police release, news outlets report that the 35-year-old Jamaican, Nadia Dominique Morgan was killed late Saturday night. Police said Sunday that 31-year-old Jason William Hines has been charged in connection with the fatal hit-and-run.

According to the release, Morgan was driving south through an intersection on a green light when a car heading east struck her, forcing it into a third vehicle.

She was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say Hines crashed into a fire hydrant and fled the scene on foot as Morgan's car became engulfed in flames. It's unclear whether he has a lawyer.

Morgan was a faculty member at Johns Hopkins Scleroderma Centre.
