An anonymous tip led police to the vehicle that struck and killed a woman along Seven Courts Drive in Perry Hall on Jan. 22.

Detectives have located the vehicle that , along in Perry Hall, police confirmed Friday morning.

Police received an anonymous tip last week that a white four-door Ford 500 sedan, believed to be involved in the hit-and-run, was seen in Harford County, according to Detective Cathy Batton, a Baltimore County police spokeswoman.

Detectives found the vehicle on Feb. 1 and began conducting interviews, Batton said. The investigation into who was operating the vehicle when it struck is ongoing.

Shortly after 7 p.m. on the night of the incident, a vehicle traveling southbound on Seven Courts Drive stopped to allow Moore to cross the street. A Ford 500 sedan then drove around the stopped vehicle, struck Moore and fled the scene, police said.

Following the incident, community members called for along the busy roadway and neighbors of Moore held a in her honor. Signs were also posted outside the nearby , encouraging anyone with information on the hit-and-run to contact police.

That is a great lead. Thankfully someone came forward.

Hope they catch the person. I don't know how anyone could live knowing that they killed someone -and took off.

Pretty Crappy report. So I guess, all we kno it was found in harford county, but not where in harford county.
Cheryl February 03, 2012 at 08:16 PM
I'm sure the police didn't tell the Patch where they found the vehicle yet. Usually they don't let details go while the investigation is on going.
Emily Kimball (Editor) February 03, 2012 at 08:24 PM
Thanks Cheryl, the investigation is still in a sensitive stage, so police weren't giving out any additional information on the location. Everything they told me is here in the article. I hope to update on Monday.
Donna Davis February 03, 2012 at 10:18 PM
Thanks Emily I appreciate knowing the car was found and there is hope that the person or persons responsible might be brought to justice
Bob February 03, 2012 at 10:48 PM
Real class, shiek.
Mark February 03, 2012 at 11:16 PM
Why call it "crappy" when Emily told you all that the police were giving out? Or on the other hand, do you think she had more info but just didn't feel like sharing it? Don't be too quick to judge; she's doing a terrific job!

I'm with Bob on this,, I will be nice and just let it be..Its great that they have a BIG LEAD on the case, hopefully its a case breaker!!.(a lil off the subject)... I think that the Perry Hall Patch is the best. I live in the heart of PH and love it that i can always rely on the PHP to gimme the ""Good,Bad and Sad"" news...FREE! I love this little 'Online Paper'..I have told alot of people about this site, and they would all agree, this is so informative and honest... Its also nicer than reading the Local papers, and/or watching the News...Too depressing, its always bad and violent...The Perry Hall Patch truly tries to give a variety of news that means alot to our community, news to keep us safe,, and Good News, about the residents of our town who do good within. I think that your doing a Marvelous job Emily, please do keep up the good work! (I guess you gotta take the good with the bad when you have a open comment section) "Cant please everyone all the time!" Kudos to you!
JJ February 04, 2012 at 01:17 AM
Thanks Emily. I saw this happen and was the one to call 911. Your articles are the only information I could find. I'm grateful that someone gave this tip and hopefully it leads to an arrest.
Cheryl February 04, 2012 at 01:47 AM
Thanks for the update on this tragedy Emily. We always check the Patch first to look for info on things happening in PH!

I've been following this story closely, though I didn't know the victim. I'm also rather disappointed more information was not disclosed, but I do understand it is not the fault of the reporter, since she only has the few facts which were provided to her by the police.....I used to walk from my home off of Proctor Lane down to Weis on Seven Courts and back. Walking down Seven Courts Road, I felt as if I were walking on the shoulder of I-95. I eventually changed my route as I feared a car may lose control, and if I were hit, I wouldn't stand a chance. Sadly, I am not at all surprised this happened. I'm very conscientious about not exceeding the speed limit on this road...and always have been. I hope everyone who travels this road will now do likewise...

have you ever been driving down one of our back roads going the posted speed ( east Joppa by snyder la or cowenton for example) and the car behind you is real close because you arent drivng fast enough for them
Tracey Newton February 05, 2012 at 01:01 PM
Being a Perry Hall resident myself I have to say , please do not lose site of the most important fact that a woman's life was taken and we as a community want to keep this a nice place to live we all must work together and it should not matter where the car was found, it should be that the police where given a tip they did their job and followed up which to me is most important because once this person(s) is caught it will be a little safer. Sometimes when we can not place blame with someone we go after the next best thing. We have to have faith in the police and let them do their job and we as a community show others who feel that we are no longer going to let our roads be used as speedways by contacting our local police station as I have done in the past and notice with in less than a day they had radar on our street ( Penn Ave ) .
Jules February 05, 2012 at 03:02 PM
Yup, I sure have...and that just makes me want to drive slower. I'm not perfect, and I do my fair share of speeding on the highways, but I wll not speed while driving through residential areas.
Jules February 05, 2012 at 03:08 PM
The fact that a person's life was taken is the reason I'm anxious to learn the details of the police investigation. I'm sure they're doing a great job, and I'm not here to dispute that. It's just human nature to want to know more. At any rate, I'm glad to hear you were successful in getting action after calling the police dept. about the speeding on Penn Ave. (I do not know where that is...I live on Oak White.)
nancy sumpter February 05, 2012 at 06:56 PM
Did the police arrest anyone who owned the car?
Red Dolphin February 05, 2012 at 10:34 PM
Nancy, im no legal scholar,but I dont think thepolkcie can just arrest some one becaue the car is in their name, ya know?
Red Dolphin February 05, 2012 at 10:36 PM
" but I wll not speed while driving through residential areas ". exactly,Jules, on the highways maybe you can go a few miles over but on the regular streets, you have to be careful,,,,, I m not a perfectly speed conscious driver but in certain areas I watch my speed,,,,,,,, if fact I feel uneasy whe some one is standing right on the edge of the curb at an intersection, as thoght they might just step off any time, or slip or something,,,,,,,,, i guess i should stop( watch my rear view too) and let them cross., Have you vere sen a person cross the street or walk across a parkingl ot with out even looking ? you have to look for traffic too
Waldo Woolrich February 05, 2012 at 10:45 PM
Can we please get some traffic slowing devices on Seven Courts the traffic from Proctor Lane averages more than 45 and there is a Senior Center and a School in the area plus three three or four residential developments that are in the same area. The Doc
Jules February 05, 2012 at 11:42 PM
Proctor Lane *and* Gunview (same road, it just changes names)...in addition to Seven Courts. Cars speed at an alarming rate down these roads!
Jules February 05, 2012 at 11:43 PM
True that, but it would seem that the owner would know *who* was driving his/her car that evening.
Jules February 05, 2012 at 11:58 PM
When I worked in the city, I would travel the "back way" via Harford Road (then, I can't recall the names of the streets of my route). People would cross the street by waiting for cars in one direction to clear, then stand in the middle of the road until the other direction was clear (there are no turning lanes...they literally stood on the double yellow lines). This was particularly distressing when there was snow and ice on the road. These people could have easily been hit if a car hit a patch of ice and skidded to where they were standing. Of course, I slow down to practically a stand still when it is snowy or icy, but other than that, no amount of driving skills would have helped. Of course, this does not apply to the lady who was killed on Seven Courts, as there were no issues with snow/ice...since one car stopped to allow her to cross, I'm sure she was under the impression the second one would as well. But yes, I have seen the scenario which you describe many times...

Thanks everyone, for your kind words. I appreciate your readership and support!
Deb February 06, 2012 at 02:47 PM
agree with Jules and Waldo - even before this tragic accident, people are traveling at a very high rate of speed for a residential area. How long before something else happens?
Buzz Beeler February 07, 2012 at 12:36 AM
A couple of thoughts. A tragic event thrust upon the family and friends by someone who had no consideration for the rules of law. Thank you JJ for doing the right thing in calling 911 and for the one who criticized Ms. Kimball, I suggest you read her resume and look at her credentials which are impeccable.
Reds February 07, 2012 at 04:51 PM
They should put multiple speed bumps on that road especially the last three before it runs into Joppa Road. Dang fools fly down that road but half the people in this area don't know how to drive anyway.
