BELTSVILLE, Md. (AP) — U.S. Park Police are looking for a driver who fled the scene of a fatal crash in Beltsville.

Officers say about 2:20 a.m. Monday, a vehicle driven by Louis Poteat of Seat Pleasant was struck from the rear while on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway. Poteat, 72, died at a local hospital.

Police say the driver of the striking car did not stop. They are looking for a dark-colored Mercedes that probably has front-end damage. Officers say the car may have been involved in a race with a silver Lexus.

Anyone with information about the crash is urged to call the Park Police tip line at 202-610-8737.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close bad cases.
    My dog was poisoned to death, a stolen car was run into the front of my house, gang members are harrassing me, I get death threats, BB guns are being shot at my car when I drive, my car is being tampered with, money and jewelry has been stolen out of my house and these corrupt DOD employees are using torture as a punishment.
    Typical D.O.J. Investigation except they have been harassing me for 20 years.
