A 47-year-old Forestville woman was struck by two vehicles and killed as she tried to cross Pennsylvania Avenue Friday night, police said.

The incident occurred just before midnight in the 7100 block of Pennsylvania Avenue in the Forestville area, said Cpl. Erica Johnson, a Prince George’s County police spokeswoman. She said the woman, Dorothy Lewis-Gray, was trying to cross the road when she was struck by two vehicles. One remained on scene, and the other drove away, Johnson said.

Johnson said it is unclear where the woman was going or why she was in the roadway.
