The 52-year-old Beltsville woman critically injured when she was struck by a van in Wheaton Thursday morning has died.

According to Montgomery County police, Mary Josephine Fish was standing at a median on the intersection of Veirs Mill Road and Georgia Avenue at approximately 9 a.m. Fish was holding a hand-made sign, about 200 yards from a WMATA metro station.

The two cars involved in the accident had minor damage. The driver of the Honda has been identified as Felicitas Cayo Carpio, 37, of Silver Spring. Eric Seeling, 26, of Hampstead, Md. was driving the Nissan. Neither driver was injured.
