Driver located in hit-and-run crash
Police in Prince George's County have located the driver of Monday's hit-and-run crash in Fort Washington, and she is cooperating with investigators, authorities said Wednesday.
Cpl. Clinton Copeland, a Prince George's County police spokesman, declined to specify how police located the woman, saying it could hamper the investigation. Police also did not name her because she has not been charged with any crimes.
The woman was driving a vehicle that apparently struck and killed a female pedestrian sometime before 8 a.m. Monday near the intersection of Route 210 and Swan Creek Road East. Police had said the driver of that vehicle was traveling south on Route 210 and might have believed the crash involved only a deer.
Police said in a news release that they have recovered the striking vehicle from a local repair facility. They said there is no evidence to indicate drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash.
Investigators are still working to identify the woman who was hit. She is described as a black female, 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.
