WASHINGTON - A victim who was struck by a lime green Dodge Challenger in Northeast nearly four months ago succumbed to their injuries, police said, and died in a D.C. hospital over the weekend.
The Metropolitan Police Department said 38-year-old Brandon Johnson was pronounced dead by officials on Saturday.

At the time, authorities last said the man was in the hospital fighting for his life.
