A man was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver Tuesday in Northwest D.C., police said.
Officers responded at around 8:04 p.m. to the intersection of 18th Street and Florida Avenue NW, where the victim was pronounced dead on the scene, D.C. police said.
The driver did not remain on the scene, authorities said. No information on the pedestrian or vehicle has been released.
In the wake of the crash, some are calling for safety improvements in a busy area where tragedy struck just a few months ago.
In November, just a few blocks north of Wednesday's fatal crash, 24-year-old Nina Larson was struck and killed as she crossed near the intersection of Columbia Road and Biltmore Street NW. In that case, the driver stayed on the scene.
