The J-1 visa student that was hit by a SUV last Thursday has died from her injuries, according to Ocean City Police Spokeswoman Lindsay Richard.

Veronika Baďurová, 21, of Slovakia, was critically injured after she was hit by a southbound car in the 200 block of Philadelphia Avenue around 3 a.m. Baďurová was riding her bike south.

The driver did not stop after striking Baďurová, according to police.

Baďurová was transported to Ocean City EMS to Peninsula Regional Medical Center. A Maryland State Police helicopter was requested, but could not assist due to the wind. She died on Sept. 1.

“We have identified a suspect, and charges will be filed by the end of the day,” Richard said.
