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.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
