From Montgomery Community Media:

A Silver Spring woman has died from injuries suffered in a hit-and-run accident when her Audi was struck by another vehicle and then collided with two more vehicles, rolling over.

Marcelina Maria Cordoba, 22, of the 14100 block of Castle Boulevard in Silver Spring, was taken to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries Wednesday and later died, police said in a release Thursday afternoon.

Police said a Jeep Commander driven by Phyllis Nicole Ford, 37, of the 4800 block of Reisterstown Road in Baltimore was northbound on Columbia Pike and made a lane change. During the lane change, the Jeep hit an Audi driven by Cordoba, whose vehicle was also northbound on Columbia Pike.

The collision caused Cordoba's Audi to crash into a Lincoln Navigator driven by Joselyn Nicole Gamble, 29, of the 3100 block of Quartet Lane in Silver Spring, who was also northbound on Columbia Pike. The impact overturned Cordoba's Audi, which then struck a Saturn Scion driven by Rhonda Munir Eltobgi, 20, of the 2800 block of Mozart Drive in Silver Spring. Munir's vehicle was stopped at the intersection on westbound Fairland Road at Columbia Pike.

Gamble was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to a police report. The other drivers were not injured.

The accident shut down Route 29 northbound for hours Wednesday afternoon while police investigated. Police said when they arrived, Ford's Jeep was no longer at the scene and they issued a lookout for it. Ford returned to the accident scene a couple hours later.

The circumstances surrounding this collision remain under investigation.

No charges have yet been filed, according to police Thursday afternoon.

Anyone with information regarding this collision is asked to call the Collision Reconstruction Unit at 240.773.6620 or call the police non-emergency number at 301.279.8000. Callers may remain anonymous.
