Police are searching for two drivers after a woman was killed in a hit-and-run crash in the Suitland-Silver Hill area of Prince George’s County.

Jeannette Diggs, of Forestville, was struck Tuesday evening at the intersection of Walters and Chavez lanes, Prince George’s County police said. She was 64.

“She was leaving out of the parking lot across the street,” a witness told News4. “The car, it really clipped her.”
