A tragic incident has occurred in Prince George’s County involving a hit-and-run that resulted in the death of a 28-year-old bicyclist. Henok Geteta, hailing from Hyattsville, Maryland was struck by a car in the early hours of June 25. The driver of the car did not stay on the scene, leaving Henok in critical condition.
