Prince George's County police have charged a woman in connection with a hit-and-run accident Tuesday night in College Park in which Susan L. Yohe, 20, of 6501 Fairbanks St., New Carrollton, was killed.
Police charged Audrey McVeigh, 24, of 4700 Flanders La., Harwood, with homicide with a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
Susan Yohe's mother, Sally Yohe, says she and her daughter had gone late Tuesday night to start the younger woman's car, which had stalled on the highway and was parked on the shoulder of Rte. 1.
As Susan Yohe was attempting to place flares alongside her disabled auto shortly before midnight, she was struck by a car. Sally Yohe said the car dragged her daughter several yards along Baltimore Boulevard before it drove away. Susan Yohe was rushed to Prince George's County Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Around midnight, an anonymous caller told police they could find the car involved in the hit-and-run parked behind a fast-food restaurant on Baltimore Boulevard. An hour later, McVeigh called police, saying she wanted to report her car had been stolen.
After retrieving the car parked behind the fast-food restaurant and talking to McVeigh, police arrested her shortly before 4 a.m. She was charged with homicide with a car, driving while intoxicated, making a false report and leaving the scene of an accident. She is being held at the county detention center in Upper Marlboro on $2,000 bond.
