    Both of the victims of Friday morning's hit-and-run accident in Oxon Hill have died.

    Prince George's police confirmed that 55-year-old Michael Thomas died at a local hospital during the night as a result of injuries suffered when he and 62-year-old Mildred Freeman were struck by a gray compact car in the 6200 block of Oxon Hill Road.

    On Saturday afternoon, police confirmed that Freeman had also died of her injuries at a local hospital.

    Investigators say that the couple were standing in the center turn lane when the car struck them while traveling eastbound on Oxon Hill Road. Police are still looking for the driver of that vehicle.

    It is not clear at this point how the two knew each other.

    UPDATE: Investigators believe the striking vehicle could be a dark-colored Chevrolet Cavalier or Geo Prism with grill or headlight damage.
