Authorities: Body found on I-95 was hit-and-run victim
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police say a woman whose body was found alongside Interstate 95 was a hit-and-run victim.
Police say in a news release that troopers responded to a 911 call from a witness shortly after 7:30 a.m. on Thursday reporting a woman’s body near the shoulder of I-95 Northbound near Route 198.
Investigators say that based on debris found at the scene, the woman was apparently hit by a Freightliner Cascadia truck whose driver continued north. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
The identity of the victim is yet to be determined, pending autopsy results.
