ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Police in Montgomery County are investigating a hit-and-run in Rockville that killed a 24-year-old pedestrian.
Police say it happened between about 2:20 and 3:25 on Saturday morning.
Officers responding to a report of a struck pedestrian on Norbeck Road found Alonso Rodriguez, of Bethesda in the eastbound lanes. Police say Rodriguez was found by a passing driver and was already dead when emergency crews arrived.
Police say Rodriguez was in a car with two friends early Saturday that stopped along Norbeck Road, near Westbury Road. Rodriguez got out, the car continued east, and at some point over the next hour Rodriguez was struck and killed by a passing vehicle.
