A Laurel woman was fatally injured when three vehicles, two of which kept going, struck her as she crossed Laurel Fort Meade Road on Sunday night, county police said.

The woman, whose name was withheld pending notification of relatives, died instantly when the first vehicle hit her, police said.

The woman had left a McDonald's restaurant on Laurel Fort Meade Road just east of Old Line Avenue about 8 p.m. and was crossing the eastbound lanes of the road when a Chevrolet Astro van struck her and kept going, police said.

A man from the restaurant ran to help the woman, but before he could get there, an older model white Honda ran over the woman.

A Pontiac Grand Am driven by Bradley Keith Bronson, 18, of the 3500 block of Woodfern Court in Laurel also ran over her. Bronson stopped after he saw several people stopping other cars in the road, police said. No charges have been placed against him. Police said he is considered a witness.

The woman carried no identification, and no one at the scene could identify her, said police. Police said they did not know the cause of the accident but that the woman's dark clothing might have been a factor in the accident.

L Police are looking for the drivers of the van and the Honda.
