BALTIMORE  (WJZ)– Montgomery County Police are investigating a fatal pedestrian collision in Wheaton.

At around 4:37 p.m. Thursday officers responded to the intersection of Veirs Mill Road and Ferrara Avenue for the report of a pedestrian struck.

Police say a 1996 Ford Explorer was traveling eastbound on Veirs Mill Road and at the intersection of Ferrara Avenue, the driver made a U-Turn onto westbound Veirs Mill Road.

As the vehicle was making the U-Turn, investigators believe the vehicle may have struck the westbound, right-hand curb of Veirs Mill Road.

The Explorer then crossed the three westbound lanes of Veirs Mill Road, went over the center median of the road, and then crossed three lanes of eastbound Veirs Mill Road.

The vehicle continued to travel over the eastbound, right-hand curb of the road and then traveled through a bus stop shelter where it hit Maria Lusminia Colindres, 77.

Colindres of Silver Spring was transported to a local hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries.

The driver is being identified as Cheryl Denise Green, 56 , of Rockville.

The circumstances surrounding this collision remain under investigation.

Anyone with information regarding this collision is asked to contact police.
