14-year-old killed in pedestrian crash
A 14-year-old Capitol Heights girl was killed Tuesday night after she was struck by a vehicle while trying to cross a road near her home, police said.
Alexandria Bergland was trying to cross Marlboro Pike in the 5200 block when she was hit by a vehicle traveling north, police said. As her body lay in the roadway, she was struck by a second vehicle, police said.
Cpl. Erica Johnson, a Prince George's County police spokesman, said the first vehicle remained on the scene, but the second did not. She said she could not provide any description of that vehicle.
Johnson said she did not know why Bergland was trying to cross the road. Police said she lived in the area.
Bergland was taken to a local hospital, where she was later pronounced dead, police said. No one has been charged in the case.
