Police are investigating a fatal hit-and-run collision that occured in Wheaton Tuesday night.

Marlyn Eres Ali, 53, was crossing Connecticut Avenue at Everton Street when she was struck by a southbound vehicle, authorities said.

The driver fled the scene.

Ali was found nearby around 8:15 p.m. and was transported to Suburban Hospital, where she later died from her injuries. However, she may have been hit as early as 7 p.m., which is around the time she usually returned from her job as a nanny in the District, reported News4's Chris Gordon.

Police canvassed the area Wednesday evening in search of witnesses.

Investigators believe the striking vehicle was a late 1990s or early 2000s Toyota Corolla of unknown color with damage to the right front corner.

Anyone with information should contact the the Collision Reconstruction Unit at 240-773-6620 or Crime Solvers of Montgomery County at 866-411-TIPS/8477. Crime Solvers is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest or indictment. Callers may remain anonymous.
