On Tuesday August 4, 2009, a wonderful man named John “Jack” Yates (age 67) was killed, while safely operating his bicycle, by a hit and run driver at the corner of Maryland Avenue and Lafayette Avenue in Baltimore City, Maryland. The hit and run driver was operating a nondescript white box truck.
Jack Yates was a loving grandfather, father and husband. He spent his entire professional life helping troubled youth in Baltimore City. He deserves better. If anyone has information as to the identity of the truck and driver, please contact the Baltimore City Police or send a confidential email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, Steve Silverman
