(WJLA) - A man was fatally struck by three vehicles as he crossed Pennsylvania Avenue in Forestville Saturday evening. 

Police responded to the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and Donnell Drive around 8:45 p.m. and discovered a man in the roadway. He was pronounced dead on scene. 

Preliminary investigation suggests the man was attempting to cross the street when he was struck by a car. He was hit a second time by a dark colored SUV that did not remain on the scene. The first driver, however, remained on scene. Police say the man was then hit by a third car, which also stayed on scene. 

The man was not using a crosswalk, police say.
