A 32-year-old man died Saturday night after he was struck by two cars in Takoma Park, Prince George’s County police said.
Walter Franco-Chinchilla, of Hyattsville, was trying to cross the 6700 block of New Hampshire Avenue just before midnight when he was struck by a car, police said. Seconds later he was hit by a second car. Franco-Chinchilla was not in a crosswalk at the time.
When officers arrived on the scene, they found Franco-Chinchilla in the roadway, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Both drivers remained at the scene and are cooperating with investigators, police said. Investigators do not believe speeding played a role in the incident.
