Tickets issued in hit-and-run crash

Brandon Girard Allen, 30, of Lexington Park was issued several traffic citations following a personal-injury crash with a St. Mary's Transit System (STS) bus on June 19, 2018 on Great Mills Road in Lexington Park.
After the rear of the bus was struck, a driver in a black 2003 GMC Yukon was seen fleeing into the nearby Patuxent Park neighborhood. Allen, determined to be the driver, was later located at Naval Air Station Patuxent River and was charged with several citations for Failure to Remain on Scene of Accident Involving Personal Injury, Failure to Return to Scene of Accident involving Personal Injury and other traffic charges.
Six patients from the STS bus were transported to MedStar St. Mary's Hospital in Leonardtown Tuesday for non-incapacitating injuries.
Deputy Andrew Budd conducted the investigation.
