According to police, the accident occurred on the Belt Parkway around the area of the Pennsylvania Avenue exit. A man was driving his BMW i8 in the area when his vehicle suddenly rear-ended a Honda Pilot. Police arrived at the scene to help. At that time, a Nissan Rogue traveling at high speeds struck the rear of the police vehicle. The cruiser slammed into the driver on the side of the road who was standing next to his vehicle.
Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other responders were called to the scene to help those in need. The driver who was struck, identified as 35-year-old Peter Tse, was sent over the guardrail and onto the highway, sustaining severe injuries. He was tragically pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Nissan, identified as 35-year-old Audrey Edmond, is now facing charges. These include manslaughter, DUI, speeding violations, and more.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
