Hit-and-Run Driver Causes Fatal Traffic Accident in Prince George’s County, MD
On Sunday, 11/8, a passenger van carrying members of a church group was struck by a pickup truck that veered across the center lanes of traffic on a Price George’s, MD county road. Police are investigating this tragic and deadly accident, which claimed the lives of 5 people and injured dozens more.
Police have yet to determine whether the driver of the pickup truck that caused the crash was under the influence of drugs or alcohol when he swerved in front of the church van. What is known at this time is that the pickup truck had struck another car just before the accident with the van, and failed to stop at the scene. The hit-and-run driver was driving erratically at the time of the accident which killed four members of the church group, including children as young as 6 years old.
The accident took place just before 5pm in Prince George’s County, MD, and police and county officials described as one of the worst accidents they could remember.
