Investigators say hit-and-run collisions are notoriously difficult to solve.

Detectives can identify and charge drivers in less than 20% of fatal hit-and-run incidents, according to Capt. Ralph Parker, the Assistant Commander of the Prince George's County Police Special Operations Division.

"Witnesses are the most important piece," Parker said. "That information goes miles in solving these."

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit at 301-731-4422.
