Sketch released in Md. hit-and-run
Police in Prince George's County have released composite sketches of a woman killed in a Jan. 3 hit-and-run crash in Fort Washington, and they are hoping someone who knew the woman might come forward and help investigators identify her.
A passing motorist saw the woman's body just before 8 a.m. on the side of Indian Head Highway near Old Fort Road and called police, authorities have said.
The body had injuries consistent with a car crash, and investigators believe the woman was walking along the south shoulder of Indian Head Highway just past Old Fort Road when she was struck by a vehicle traveling south on Indian Head, authorities have said.
Police later located the driver involved in the crash, but they still have not identified the woman who was killed, authorities said.
She is described as a black woman, about 50 years old, 5'5'' tall and weighing 120 pounds. She was wearing a light blue jacket, blue jeans and black shoes, police have said.
The driver has not been charged with any crimes.
