Suspect vehicle information released in fatal hit and run

Police in Montgomery County have released a description of the car involved in a fatal hit and run earlier this week.

Based on vehicle evidence left at the scene, the car that struck and killed a pedestrian on Tuesday is described as a Toyota Corolla from the late 1990s to early 2000s. The color of the car is unknown, but police said the vehicle sustained front-end damage, including damage to the headlights.

The car struck 53-year-old Marlyn Eres Ali while she was crossing Connecticut Avenue at Everton Street. Police believe Ali was on her way from the L8 bus stop at that intersection to her home on nearby Elby Street.

The driver of the car left the scene.

Police are looking for witnesses who may have seen the collision as well as passengers on the L8 bus from the District into Montgomery County that evening between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Anyone with information can call 301-279-8000.
