Friends and family members are still struggling after 68-year-old Beverly Moore was in the middle of a busy Perry Hall roadway.

Within yards of her Bourbon Court town home and holding groceries from a shopping trip at , Moore attempted to cross Seven Courts Drive shortly after 7 p.m. on Jan. 22. A vehicle stopped to allow her to cross, but a Ford 500 sedan swerved around the vehicle, , before leaving the scene.

Police located the in Harford County on Feb. 1, but have not yet charged anyone in the case, Baltimore County police spokeswoman Louise Rogers-Feher told Patch on Tuesday.

The investigation has been turned over to the Baltimore County State's Attorney's Office, Rogers-Feher said.

One of Moore's neighbors said an arrest in the case would bring some consolation to the grieving neighborhood.

"We still feel the sadness. It's just so hard for us to understand how this happened," said Cindy Hill, who knew Moore for more than 20 years.

"She had already been through so much before this," Hill said, adding that Moore's husband, Jerry, had died just two years earlier.

Across from Weis and along Seven Courts, small bouquets of silk flowers rest in front a longstanding sign that asks anyone with information about the hit-and-run to contact police.

A was held in that same area one week after the incident.

"It's still so hard to make sense of it all," Hill added.

Have driving conditions along Seven Courts improved at all since the incident? Tell us in the comments.

yesterday, approx. 4:30 p.m., two young men ran red light at Joppa and Seven Courts. First vehicle on Joppa in turning lane was just starting his turn. One of the men turned around and laughed because the individual making the turn had to slam on their brakes. Unbelievable.

People need to stop blaming teenagers for everything. I have had more issues with 30's and older drivers then teenagers. Your driving skill is based on how you drive and choices you make not your age. I rather drive on a road with most teenagers then adults driving.

The road is wide and people think it's a 45 mph run. People simply need to reads the signs and slow down. I am like Tim in that I will do 30 mph and take all the horns and fecal matter they want to cry about. No one has a right to tailgait a person, especially at the speed limit. However, I am a 280 pound man. A 111 pound lady may not be in the same position. I wish we had something that would catch aggressive drivers. I wish I could send a ticket to the state everytime I get tailgated. I I could, we might not be talking about tax increases this year.

If they have the car, why not a suspect? No prints? No clues?

Thank you Jeanne for your comment on not blaming teenagers. This is definitely not an age issue, it's a everyone needs to slow down - this is a wake up call- issue ...for everyone. It could mean saving a life. As far as why they haven't found a suspect yet. I am sure they know more details than they have released but want a solid case before they make an arrest. Moral of this story. Slow down. It could save a life.
