COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Prince George's County police say the driver involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident that killed a University of Maryland student early Friday morning as he tried to cross the street has turned himself in.  Police have not released the driver's identity yet, and they say he has not yet been charged.

Police identified the hit-and-run victim as 22-year-old Cory Hubbard of West Hampton Beach, New York.  Investigators say Hubbard was crossing U.S. Route 1 near Knox Road in College park when he was struck.  He later died at a local hospital.

Authorities released a photo taken from surveillance video showing the suspect's vehicle in hopes of finding the driver. 

A friend of Hubbard who was with him when the accident happened told FOX 5's Kellee Azar they were together with a group of friends laughing and having a good time, but everything changed in seconds. 

"He just walked across the street and a car got him, and kept going," said Hubbard's friend, who didn't want to be identified.
