Woman, 19, Fatally Struck in Laurel last week

LAUREL, Md. (ABC7) — An investigation is underway now in Prince George’s County after 19-year-old Helene Audrey Ngatou Ngassa was hit and killed by a car Friday morning.

Police say just after 6 a.m. Friday, Ngassa was crossing Route 197 near Morris Drive when a northbound SUV struck her.

Witnesses told police the 66-year-old driver had the green light and that Ngassa was not using a crosswalk. It was also still dark outside at the time of the accident.

Police say the driver remained on the scene and was cooperative with them.
Drivers here say even during the early morning rush, this can be a very busy street and a challenge for anyone trying to cross.

Family members say they don’t know where Ngassa was going at that early hour. They and others in the community hope police can come up with answers.

Commuter Moises Arisdy says, “It gets very, very busy here.” He also says this street can be a problem, but that he feels sorry for the family’s loss.

“I’m very sorry for the family and the person who lost her life.”

Authorities confirmed that Ngassa graduated from Laurel High School in 2014. The family says she was attending community college.

No one has been charged.
