Authorities say 39-year-old Erica Bonora was found dead Saturday around 2:48 p.m. after officers responded to an apartment in the 1000 block of Spa Road for a welfare check. Police say Bonora had suffered trauma to her upper body and that her vehicle was missing.

Hours later and less than a mile away, police spotted and attempted to stop her vehicle. Authorities say the driver fled and crashed into a tractor trailer in Prince George's County.

The occupant was hospitalized and is considered a 'person of interest,' according to officials.
