A woman was struck and killed in an intentional hit-and-run incident Sunday in Northern Virginia, police said.
The victim was identified as Shamsa Begum, 66, of Manassas.
Manassas City Police said she was standing in the street on Cloverhill Road when she was hit. The driver of the car fled, they said. The incident occurred about 5 p.m. in the 9600 block of Cloverhill, police said.
Begum was taken to a hospital and later died.
Authorities said Muhammad Taha, 29, of Maryland, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder in the case. Taha “intentionally struck” Begum, police said.
Police found Taha at a nearby 7-Eleven store and taken into custody. He also faces a charge of driving under the influence and having an open container, police said. He’s being held without bond, and a court date is set for May.
Police said Taha and Begum knew each other. No motive was given.
