Another Juvenile Pedestrian Struck in Bethesda

Montgomery County Police say a 17-year-old Walter Johnson student was struck by a vehicle on Montrose Road and Bargate Court in Bethesda on Friday morning. Officials say this happened shortly after 7 a.m. when he was hit by a small SUV while walking to get on a school bus.

The student has been taken to a local hospital with serious life-threatening injuries. Officials say the driver stayed on the scene, and this is an open investigation.  This is the second juvenile pedestrian involved accident that has happened in Bethesda within a 24-hour time span.

On Thursday evening, a 9-year-old Bradley Hills Elementary School student was struck by a school bus at Millwood Road and Tanglewood Drive in Bethesda. She was taken to Children’s National Hospital where she died of her injuries.

The bus driver, Serigne Makhtar Ndiaye, 53, of Severn, had just unloaded several students including the victim from the bus, and was turning right onto northbound Millwood Road from westbound Tanglewood Drive.

Police are currently investigating this incident.

    To add to this horrible incident which of its kind seems to be increasing day by day. I live in Downtown Bethesda and the way the people drive make me feeling like going upto them pulling them out of their cars and beating them up. I think we need more unmarked cars in this areas to catch fools who drive like they don’t care.
