Officials say 47 year-old John Allan Schmidt of Northeast, was hit by a black Dodge Charger four door sedan with tinted windows and unknown tags on Tuesday night.
According to officials, the Dodge Charger was driving fast in the 3000 block of 20th Street N.E. when it came to an abrupt stop at the corner of 20th Street and Rhode Island Avenue, N.E. to let out a woman passenger before speeding off again.
