SALISBURY, MD—Maryland State Police are investigating a hit-and-run crash and vehicle pursuit that occurred on March 28, 2024, in Wicomico County.

Shortly before 10:25 a.m., an off-duty trooper from the Maryland State Police Salisbury Barrack was driving his marked Department vehicle south on Airport Road adjacent to Salisbury Regional Airport when he stopped at a work zone where a flagging operation was in effect. Workers were allowing northbound traffic to proceed.

According to a preliminary investigation, the driver of a blue Jeep, who was in front of the trooper’s vehicle, swerved into the northbound lane in an attempt to bypass the work zone. The driver of the Jeep swerved back into the southbound lanes to avoid oncoming traffic before driving off the road and into a roadside ditch.

Investigators said the driver of the Jeep, identified as Jamal Patrick Scarborough, 27, (DOB 12/20/1995) of 5352 Tulls Corner Road, Marion Station, Maryland, accelerated his vehicle, ran over the orange casings placed on the road by the utility crew and ran over one of the utility workers, who was on the ground working. The worker, a 64-year-old male, was transported by ambulance to Tidal Health Peninsula Regional Hospital before being flown by private helicopter to Christiana Hospital in Delaware for treatment of his injuries.

The off-duty trooper, along with troopers from the Salisbury Barrack and an additional off-duty trooper, pursued Scarborough briefly through Airport Road, Maryland Route 12, and Nutters Crossing Road before apprehending the suspect on a field near Johnson Road in Salisbury, Maryland.

Scarborough was arrested at the scene and charged by Maryland State Trooper B. Todd. The Maryland State Police Crash Team is leading the investigation. After consulting with the Wicomico County State’s Attorney’s Office, Scarborough was charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault, causing a life-threatening injury while operating a vehicle in a criminally negligent manner, causing serious injury to a vulnerable individual, attempting to elude police and related offenses.

Scarborough is being held without bond at the Wicomico County Jail. A bond hearing was held by District Court Judge Cathi V. Coates on March 28, 2024 and court records show that a Preliminary Hearing will be held on April 25, 2024.
