Hit-and-run victim found on Pr. George's roadside
Investigators believe the body found lying on the side of Route 210 in Fort Washington Monday was the victim of a hit-and-run crash, and they are asking for the public's help in finding out what happened.
A person driving by spotted the body just before 8 a.m. near the intersection of Route 210 and Swan Creek Road East, said Sgt. Michelle Reedy, a Prince George's County police spokeswoman.
The body was that of a female and was badly injured, she said. The woman is described as black, about 50 years old, 5'5" tall and weighing 120 pounds, police said. She was wearing a light blue jacket, blue jeans and black shoes, police said.
Investigators believe the incident to be a hit-and-run crash, Reedy said, but they have no information on who struck the woman or who the woman is. Reedy said it is possible someone driving by might have thought the crash involved only a deer, and she asked anyone with information to call the department's collision analysis and reconstruction unit at 301-731-4422. Police said in a news release the car was probably traveling south, and the woman was walking along the shoulder of the road.
