ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland Senate has voted to create an alert program to find missing drivers in hit-and-run accidents that result in serious injury.

The Senate voted 47-0 Thursday for the bill, which is sponsored by Sen. Bryan Simonaire, an Anne Arundel County Republican.

The measure would create a Yellow Alert system, similar to alert systems used to help find missing children and endangered adults.

The bill would require the state police to adopt guidelines and procedures for the program. State police also would consult with the State Highway Administration to develop a plan for providing information to the public for a Yellow Alert through the message sign system around the state.

The measure now goes to the House of Delegates.
