Investigators Release Details of Vehicles Possibly Connected to Fatal Pedestrian Hit-and-Run in Forestville

The Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit is asking for the community’s assistance with an active investigation into a fatal pedestrian hit-and-run in Forestville last month. The deceased pedestrian is 64-year-old Jeannette Diggs of Forestville. 

 On March 15, 2022, at approximately 8:35 pm, patrol officers were called to the 3300 block of Walters Lane for a report of a pedestrian collision. Once on scene, they discovered Diggs unresponsive in the roadway. She was pronounced deceased a short time later at a hospital.

The preliminary investigation suggests multiple vehicles may have struck Diggs as she crossed the street. Investigators are looking for two vehicles that may be involved. One is described as a newer model, two-door, red Mercedes. The second is a silver four-door Cadillac. These vehicles could have had front end damage, focused on their driver’s sides.   

Investigators would like to identify these vehicles and speak to their drivers to determine involvement.

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