A young woman died shortly after being struck on Veirs Mill Road in Rockville Monday night.

Montgomery County Police said Beza Amare Eshetu, 19, of the 12500 block of Veirs Mill Road, had gotten off a bus near the intersection of Veirs Mill and Parkland Drive and was crossing the road with her mother when she was struck around 5:55 p.m. Eshetu was transported to a local hospital where she died from her injuries, according to police.

Police said the driver, identified as a 68-year-old Silver Spring man, was traveling west in a 2004 Volvo station wagon on Veirs Mill Road and had a green signal when his vehicle struck Eshetu.

Police said the driver, who remained at the scene, was also transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Detectives are continuing to investigate the incident, but said a preliminary investigation found that Eshetu was walking across the road when the “do not walk” signal was displayed. Eshetu’s mother was not injured, according to police.
