A man was killed Thursday morning when his scooter was struck from behind by a Buick Lacrosse.
Montgomery County police are investigating a fatal car accident on Rockville Pike that left one man dead. The accident happened shortly before 1:30 a.m. Thursday, near the intersection of Rockville Pike and Edmonston Drive.
A scooter was waiting for the traffic signal to turn green on Northbound Rockville Pike, and as it did, it was struck from behind by a Buick Lacrosse sedan with Pennsylvania tags, according to Montgomery County police. The scooter's driver struck the car's windshield and was left on the road, while the driver of the sedan continued for almost a mile before being stopped by police.
Rockville Pike was closed for nearly seven hours between Edmonston and Viers Mill Roads while authorities investigated the accident and towed the vehicles away. It's unclear if alcohol or drugs were involved in the accident.
The driver of the scooter was taken to a nearby hospital in grave condition and died shortly thereafter. The sedan's driver is being questioned.
