College Park, Md. --- A man who says he struck and killed a University of Maryland student early Friday on Route 1 has surrendered to police.

Police say around 1:35 a.m., officers responded to the intersection of Baltimore Avenue (U.S. Route 1) and Knox Road in College Park for the report of a pedestrian struck. When police arrived, they found a man suffering from critical injuries. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police have identified the victim as 22-year-old Cory Hubbard of West Hampton Beach, New York.

The impact was horrific. According to reports, the victim was struck and thrown into the air where he hit a nearby lamppost before falling to the ground.

The preliminary investigation, police say, reveals that Hubbard was trying to cross Baltimore Avenue when he was struck by a car. He was not in a crosswalk. The driver of the striking vehicle fled the scene but turned himself in to police hours later. Police have not yet identified or charged the driver until forensic investigators can positively link the car to the crime.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit at (301) 731-4422.
