    A pedestrian was struck and killed Friday morning in Greenbelt, Maryland, in what appears to be a hit-and-run crash, police say. 

    The woman was struck on Greenbelt Road near Capital Drive -- just below Interstate 495. Officers arrived to find the victim lying off to the side of the road shortly after 7 a.m. It's unclear how long the woman had been on the road before she was discovered.

    Crash investigators collected car parts and other evidence at the scene, including what appeared to be a car bumper.

    With that evidence, investigators believe the suspect was driving a 2007 to 2011 Toyota Camry that is dark gray and silver.  The car will have damage to the passenger side and a missing passenger side mirror, police said.

    Westbound Greenbelt Road was shut down for hours through the Friday morning commute.
