WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - The driver of a vehicle involved in a collision that left a pedestrian dead and several others injured has been arrested and charged with murder, police say.
Police say 21-year-old Dejuan Andre Marshall was driving a Chevrolet Cruz at a high rate of speed when his vehicle struck a Chevrolet Malibu around 3 p.m. on Sunday at 16th and V Streets in Southeast, D.C. Investigators say the impact caused the Chevrolet Malibu to redirect and strike a man who was walking in the 2100 block of 16th Street.
That man, identified as 31-year-old Abdul Seck, of the Bronx in New York, was pronounced dead on the scene. The driver of the Chevrolet Malibu and three passengers inside of the vehicle were all hospitalized with injuries.
Marshall was arrested later on Sunday and charged with second-degree-murder. The investigation is still continuing.
DC Department of Transportation will install a four-way stop and speed bumps at the site of the deadly crash, DDOT Director Jeff Marootian announced Monday. Work will be completed over the next several weeks.
