Jahbari Jawon Howe was riding his bike on Woodmore North Boulevard near Forest Chapel Lane at about 7:30 p.m. Sunday when he was hit. Prince George's County Police officials say that Howe abruptly turned his bike into the street and into the path of an Infinity SUV.

The car was not able to stop in time and the boy was struck, causing critical injuries. He was taken to an area hospital, where he passed away Tuesday.

Alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors in the crash, authorities say, nor have charges been filed.
