The victim has been identified as Eva Brooks-Fletcher, according to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office, and an autopsy is to be performed today.

Detectives and crash scene investigators were at the scene as late at 10 p.m. trying to reconstruct the accident in the area of Abbey and Brooklyn avenues that was reported at about 5:30 p.m.

Police and rescue units were dispatched to the area on reports about the accident that left the bike in a crumpled heap beneath the front end of the car. Both vehicles appeared to be resting against or near a utility pole.

The preliminary investigation shows that the impact occurred in the intersection (Abbey and Brooklyn come together at West Third) and both vehicles continued west before coming to a stop.

“We’re looking for the other party involved,” Dayton Sgt. Mark Spiers said.

“We’re looking for the occupants and trying to determine how many people were in the car. The occupants in the car did flee.”

Spiers said the intersection is a busy one, noting the accident could have involved a traffic light violation.

Brooks-Fletcher was alone, and Spiers said police are trying to determine how many people were in the car.

There were several witnesses to the incident, he said, and detectives were interviewing them into the evening.

A person who identified herself as a friend said Brooks-Fletcher was a member of the Queens of the Night Motorcycle Club.

The person also said Brooks-Fletcher was on the way to a store to get cigarettes.
