Last night, a cyclist riding on Ritchie Highway in Capital Heights was struck by two street-racing vehicles. The cyclist later died. Drivers left the scene and police are searching for them.
Police believe that racing cars may have led to a fatal hit and run early Saturday morning in Capitol Heights.
The story is developing but Prince George’s County Police say it happened just after midnight along Ritchie Road between Central Avenue and Ritchie Marlboro Road. Police think a black Dodge Charger and another black sports car were racing before crashing into and killing a cyclist.
Police later said that the victim, an adult female, was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Update: The cyclist has been identified as Donna Holliday Clark, 56-years-old, of Ritchboro Road in Forestville.
