WASHINGTON – Authorities say a foreign affairs reporter for USA Today was killed in a DUI hit-and-run crash in Washington.

News outlets cite a Metropolitan Police Department release that says 53-year-old Oren Dorell was driving a motorcycle when he was struck by a car Friday night. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police say 47-year-old Daryl Grant Alexander was driving under the influence. He was arrested on charges of second-degree murder, driving under the influence and leaving after colliding. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.

Dorrell was born in Canada and lived in Bolivia, Israel and Philadelphia, where he ran his own contracting business for a decade after high school. He then enrolled at Temple University to facilitate a two-decade journalism career.

He’s survived by a wife and two sons.
