TEMPLE HILLS, MD.  Walking along area roadways is fraught with danger at any hour but remarkably more if one is wearing dark clothes and perhaps staggering, as many of the drivers at 3 am staggered to their cars after leaving bars.

The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit would like to talk to anyone who witnessed or has information in a pedestrian hit-and-run in Temple Hills early this morning. The victim suffered critical injuries. The car that hit the victim is described as a dark-colored, 4-door sedan.

On May 9, 2015, at about 2:40 am, patrol officers were called to the 3100 block of Branch Avenue for a pedestrian collision. When they arrived, they found a man in the roadway with critical injuries.

The preliminary investigation reveals the striking car was heading northbound on Branch Avenue when it struck the victim. The victim had been walking on the northbound side of Branch Avenue. The driver briefly stopped but then left the scene.

Anyone with information about this hit-and-run is urged to call the Collision Analysis & Reconstruction Unit at (301) 731-4422.
