    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.
