For Immediate Release: Monday, October 31, 2022
A Montgomery County grand jury has indicted a 22-year-old Silver Spring man on 10 counts related to a hit and run pedestrian collision, with the lead charges of felony hit and run and life-threatening injury resulting from driving a motor vehicle in a criminally negligent manner.
On Thursday, May 5, 2022, at approximately 9:50 p.m., Davee Mannah Kromah was driving north on Columbia Pike in a dark gray 2014 Ford Fusion when he ran a red light and struck an adult male, who was in a marked crosswalk at the intersection of Columbia Pike and Prelude Drive.
Responding officers were able to identify the make and model of the suspect vehicle and conducted a search of the surrounding area. The damaged Ford Fusion was found on Heather Hollow Circle, close to Kromah’s home and officers identified him as the possible driver. Collision Reconstruction Unit detectives interviewed Kromah, and during the investigation, discovered items of evidentiary value connecting him to the hit and run.
An indictment is not a finding of guilt. Davee Mannah Kromah is presumed innocent until proven guilty, pending the outcome of a trial.
