The man who was killed Saturday in Prince George’s County by an apparent hit-and-run driver was a former Marine who had served in Afghanistan, his mother said.

Eric D. Bridgett, 27, of Clinton was found early Saturday at Kirby Road and Marwood Drive in the Clinton area, police said. They said preliminary investigation suggested that he was struck while trying to cross Kirby. The vehicle that hit him did not stop, police said.

His mother, Claudia Bridgett, said he was headed to his in-laws’ home, where his wife, Brandi, and their three children were staying while the couple looked for a home of their own. She said he had finished work at a restaurant and then stopped by his mother’s home in Clinton before heading to his in-laws’ house about 1 a.m.
