UPDATED: Two women killed overnight in separate but similar hit-and-runs


FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. — Two local women were killed around 3 a.m. Saturday morning in separate hit and run incidents, both due to being struck after they got out their vehicles.

The first incident occurred on I-66 in Fairfax County around 2:20 a.m., when a woman pulled to the side of the road to get something out of her trunk.

As she walked alongside of the car, this woman was hit by a passing vehicle and died at the scene. Virginia State Police responded to the accident and found the driver who hit her had fled. The suspect vehicle is described as a charcoal gray or black newer model sedan that is missing its passenger-side mirror, and has damage to the passenger side wheel wall.

Virginia State Police are still looking for the suspect in the first incident, and can be reached at 703-803-0026 (or #77 on a cell phone), or by email at questions@vsp.virginia.gov.

At about 3 a.m., officers in Prince George’s County in Maryland responded to a fatal pedestrian collision at the intersection of St. Barnabas and Wheeler Road. The woman had gotten out of her car after a minor traffic accident, and was hit and killed by a passing pickup truck. This woman died on-scene as well.

Prince George’s County have identified the second victim as Kishon Wiggins, 23, of Southeast DC.  They report that the driver who killed her turned himself into police late Saturday afternoon. He had fled the scene when a patrol officer arrived at the accident.
