Pedestrian Hit by Two Cars, Killed

A pedestrian was struck by two different cars and killed early Sunday morning in Takoma Park, Md.

Prince George’s County police said a car was traveling north on New Hampshire Avenue shortly after midnight when the victim, Walter Franco-Chinchilla, 32, of Hyattsville, stepped into traffic and was hit. A short time later, another car traveling north hit Franco-Chinchilla, who was lying in the roadway.

Both drivers remained on the scene. Investigators said it does not appear the pedestrian was inside the crosswalk.
