Tiara Nichelle Jackson: Police identify woman killed on Capital Beltway last week

Several days after a gruesome and violent crash that killed a woman on the Capital Beltway last week, authorities have identified the woman as Tiara Nichelle Jackson, 22, of Clinton, Maryland.

The crash happened just after 1 a.m. Saturday on the outer loop of the Beltway near Ritchie Marlboro Road, Maryland State Police say.

Authorities say the victim got out of her Chrysler Sebring after crashing into the median guardrail. She was then hit by several cars, none of which stopped, as she walked along the highway.

The woman's body was so badly disfigured that identifying her quickly was impossible, officials say.
