Mother of Saddiq Washington, accused shooter, in Springfield Township road rage shooting charged

SPRINGFIELD TWP., Pa. (WPVI) — The mother of the defendant accused in a street rage shooting in the community of Springfield has been charged in connection with the case, according to the Delaware County Attorney’s Office.

Amanda Washington, the mother of 22-year-old Saddiq Washington, has been charged with obstructing law enforcement, District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer said Friday.

Saddiq Washington of Darby is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 54-year-old King Hua.

Hua, a community resident, and his wife were traveling on State Road (Route 1) near Meetinghouse Lane at approximately 8:43 am on June 29 when the driver of a vehicle passed them on the shoulder.


The vehicle was then stopped and Washington, who was a passenger in the car, partially got out and shot the victim’s Toyota, Stollsteimer said.

The bullets went through the windshield and hit Hua. He was taken to the hospital but died from his injuries.

Stollsteimer said Washington’s mother was driving the car at the time of the shooting.

“While it was the actions of her son that led to this heartbreaking tragedy, we cannot ignore the actions of Amanda Washington. She decided to sprint away from the crime scene. She has chosen to remain silent even after it was announced that Mr. Hua had died. It was a catastrophic breach of her responsibilities as a parent and as a citizen that led to today’s indictment,” Stollsteimer said.

Investigators believe Hua was shot because he was driving too slowly.
