PGPD Investigates Fatal Pedestrian Collision in Chillum

The Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit is investigating a fatal pedestrian collision in Chillum. The victim is 16-year-old Keyri Alfaro-Guevara of 24th Avenue in Hyattsville.

On May 4, 2016, at about 9:50 pm, patrol officers were called to the intersection of East-West Highway at 23rd Avenue for a collision involving a pedestrian. When they arrived, the officers found the victim suffering from critical injuries. She was taken to a hospital where she died on May 23rd.

The preliminary investigation reveals a car heading eastbound on East-West Highway struck Alfaro-Guevara as she tried to cross the street. Preliminarily, it appears she was in a crosswalk at the time but was crossing against the pedestrian crossing signal. The driver of the car remained on the scene. She was not hurt.

Anyone with information about this collision is asked to call the Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit at (301) 731-4422. Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS, text “PGPD plus your message” to CRIMES (274637) or go towww.pgcrimesolvers.com.
