The driver shamefully left the scene and this is a hit and run.
Can we get some community outrage now? Can we get some traffic speed enforcement on Connecticut, Georgia, University, etc? What has to happen for cars to stop speeding through our neighborhoods and hitting people?
As I wrote about last week, this keeps happening. This is the fourth innocent pedestrian death in four weeks in the area that closely surrounds Wheaton.
As reported by Patch (same link as above):
Montgomery County police are looking for a Toyota Corolla in connection with a hit-and-run that occurred in Aspen Hill Tuesday night. Police said via Twitter that the car in question is of unknown color and a model from the late 1990s to the early 2000s.
According to a police statement, Ali appeared to have been crossing from east to west on Connecticut Avenue at Everton Street. She had crossed the northbound lanes safely but was struck by a vehicle in the southbound lanes.
