It was a terrible night last night in Landover when a woman walking on Landover Road near Kilmer Street and Route 50 was struck and killed by a car that then fled the scene. The crash and death of the pedestrian led to a closure of Route 202 (Landover Road) until Friday morning as police began their investigation of the crash.
The pedestrian's name has not yet been released. Our hearts and prayers go out to the family.
Walking at night near major roadways can be very dangerous. Remember to wear light colored clothing and stay as far away from the roadway as possible. Reflectors and flash lights help drivers see pedestrians in the dark.
