Police say a 33-year-old Maryland father of two may have been struck twice while crossing a Hyattsville street last month.
Police were called to the 7200 block of Landover Road near Pinebrook Avenue around 9 p.m. Nov. 22.
The pedestrian, identified as 33-year-old Adelphi, Md., resident Akil Anthony Ross, was then hit by several other cars, including that of an off-duty officer, who stayed on the scene. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
"I'm very saddened and upset," Ross' grandmother Esther Drakes said. "I grieve a lot."
