Natasha Pettigrew Dead – The Maryland Green Party have found themselves in a horrible position, with their candidate for the U.S. Senate having a tragic accident befall her.
Natasha Pettigrew, 30, was riding her bike along a road, when an SUV came and ran her over. Christy R. Littleford, 41, who was driving a Cadillac Escalade, didn’t stop, as she thought she hit an animal. When Littleford returned home, she found a bike under her SUV and called Prince George’s County Police.
No charges have been laid as yet, according to police, and the matter is still under investigation.
Pettigrew was the candidate for the Maryland Green Party. A replacement for her has not been found yet, however the party has until the 4th of October to make a submission. The party is coming together later this week to speak about a new candidate to have stand for the senate.
Pettigrew’s mother, Kennis Henry, spoke in an interview on WJLA-TV news, and had a message for the driver who hit a person and paid no attention.
“Could you at least, you know, stop, hold her, call 911, talk to her, say, ‘It’s going to be all right?'” said Henry.
