Two Cars Strike an Elderly Woman In a Pedestrian Accident Resulting in Death
Residents near Veirs Mill Road are shaken after a fatal pedestrian collision on Tuesday evening around 7pm. The Montgomery County Police are currently investigating the incident that led to the road closure between Atlantic Avenue and Meadow Hall Drive.
When the police were called to the scene on Veirs Mill Road, they found a woman who had been hit by two cars lying lifeless in the road. The preliminary investigation revealed that the victim was crossing the road at Atlantic Avenue when the accident occurred.
