Madison resident Jasmin Morales-Cruz was driving along Ocean Parkway in Kensington, when she struck 28-year-old Evvon Alexander shortly before 4 a.m., according to police.

Alexander had been traveling in the opposite direction on Ocean Parkway, when he attempted to turn onto Beverly Road before the fatal collision, cops said.
