Two pedestrians were struck by a car and killed late Saturday, after reportedly fighting in the middle of a Maryland roadway, Howard County Police said Sunday.

Police said no charges have been filed against the driver and passenger of a 2002 Honda Civic involved in the collision, which occurred at about 11:14 p.m. on US 1 in Jessup. The incident is under investigation.

The vehicle was southbound on Washington Boulevard (US 1) near Port Capital Drive “when it struck two pedestrians who were on the ground in the roadway,” police said in a statement. “A witness reported the pedestrians were in a physical altercation in the travel portion of the roadway,” police said.

Delcy Martinez Hernandez, 18, of Elkridge, was pronounced dead after being transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, police said.

Investigators are asking for help in identifying the second victim, who was not carrying identification. Police said the second person appears to be a black transgender woman in her early- to mid-20s with shoulder- length black hair and a wrist tattoo that reads “Sina,” and who may be from the Philadelphia area.

Neither the driver of the Honda, nor passenger, were injured.
