Casualties of Indifference

Part 1 Pedestrian casualties mount in Maryland town as officials defer action  
After three young pedestrians were struck and killed by cars near the University of Maryland in 2014, the Maryland State Highway Administration committed to swift and comprehensive safety improvements within months. Not so in Langley Park, a poor, immigrant community a few minutes west of campus. A student investigation at Capital News Service found at least 138 pedestrians have been struck, eight fatally, along a dangerous, two-mile stretch of state road since 2009 — and that the highway administration has done little to stop the carnage.

Part 2 100 hotspots: Pedestrian accidents pile up on state roads across Maryland 
A car struck and killed Consuelo Anglarill, 82, last January as she crossed a state road outside the Wheaton Metro station. Only three days earlier, a woman was seriously injured near the same spot.  Since 2015, 42 pedestrians have been hit on state-maintained streets in the Washington suburb. It’s among 100 hotspots for pedestrian accidents statewide, an analysis by Capital News Service found.
