A pedestrian was killed Friday morning after being struck by a vehicle on Georgia Avenue in Aspen Hill, according to authorities.

Around 4:30 a.m., Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Service crews were called to the area of Georgia Avenue near Rossmoor Boulevard for a collision involving a pedestrian, spokesman Pete Piringer posted on Twitter. The pedestrian, an adult, suffered life-threatening injuries and was not taken to a hospital, Piringer wrote.

Shiera Goff, a Montgomery County police spokeswoman, confirmed that the pedestrian had died. She did not have additional details about the incident or the pedestrian’s identity on Friday.

In a press release Saturday morning, the police department identified the victim as 87-year-old Randall Dwight Gibson of Rockville.

The crash happened in an area of Georgia Avenue close to the Leisure World shopping center.

Georgia Avenue, in recent years, has become a common location for fatal pedestrian crashes, including those involving a husband and wife that were killed in separate crashes in 2016 and 2021, just a few blocks apart.

There have been seven fatal pedestrian crashes in Montgomery County so far this year.
