This morning, a man from Kensington was killed while attempting to cross a roadway, said Montgomery County Police. The 93-year-old was crossing the road when he was hit by a Toyota Corolla around 6:50am. The vehicle was traveling eastbound when the crash suddenly knocked the man into the center of the road. Two other cars also hit the pedestrian. They all stayed at the scene of the wreck after hitting the man. Charges have not been filed as of this afternoon. “It’s still under investigation as to who’s at fault, if anyone, whether speed was a factor or any of those other considerations,” said a police representative. A Maryland State Police helicopter took aerial photographs and the Collision Reconstruction Unit investigated the scene of the wreck, according to news reports.
