Officials say Adrian McGaughy was a passenger in a car that was making a left turn onto 76th St. from eastbound Silver Spring when it was struck by a northbound car traveling at a high rate of speed. Police say the striking vehicle may have run a red light.

McGaughy and one other person were in that car that was struck. Four people in the other vehicle didn’t bother to stop or help.

The vigil for McGaughy was held on what would have been his 25th birthday.

"Just the spirit and the support we've gotten has really given us some strength to help see us through the most difficult time of our life. He's our last born and first to go," McGaughy's mother, Delores McGaughy said.

We are told police have a 25-year-old man in custody who they think may have been the driver. They’re seeking at least one more known suspect from the striking vehicle.

    I walked over that bridge to the old browning school in the early ’70s and people drove like idiots then, it seemed like there was always glass and broken car parts at least once a week. Nothing has changed around there. Condolences to the family.
