News Release, Prince George’s County Police Department

On Monday, March 4th, at 9:10 pm, Prince George’s County Police officers were called to the 100 block of Monument Avenue in Oxon Hill for the report of an injured person in the roadway.  When officers arrived on scene they discovered a 27-year-old-male who was in and out of consciousness in the roadway. 

There were no witnesses present who could relay any information to officers as to how the man sustained the injuries.  He was rushed to a local hospital suffering from trauma to his head and leg. He is currently listed in critical condition in the intensive care unit. 

Upon further investigation through the night, officers were able to locate and view surveillance video which showed the pedestrian attempting to cross Monument Avenue when an unknown-colored sedan traveling from Rivercrest Road merged onto Monument Avenue and struck the pedestrian. 

Video shows the sedan, after impact, slowed down for a moment and then sped back up towards the Beltway and left the scene.  The pedestrian was not in a crosswalk.  We have identified the victim and notified his family.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Special Operations Division at 301-731-4422.
