Two Vehicles Collide and One Strikes a Pole In a Severe Car Accident Resulting in Death
Tragedy struck early Monday morning in Prince George’s County when a two-vehicle crash resulted in the loss of one life. Emergency responders rushed to the scene just after 6:15 a.m. following reports of the crash with injury. The sight that greeted them was one of devastation. A vehicle mangled beyond recognition was found off the road, lying on its side in a nearby wooded area.
Reports state that the victim was trapped inside the vehicle and pronounced dead by authorities at the scene. Details surrounding the accident have yet to be fully released. The impact caused one of the vehicles to hit a pole and end up on its side. Adding to the chaos, live power lines were left scattered on the street. The identity of the deceased has not been disclosed.
The collision has caused travel lanes to remain blocked and an extended closure is expected. Unfortunately, not much information has been released about the cause of the accident, how many individuals were involved, or their current condition. While repairs continue, southbound traffic is currently being diverted at Sunnyside Avenue with northbound traffic being diverted to Cherrywood Lane. The Metropolitan Area Transportation Operations Coordination (MATOC) Program is working hard to provide updates as they become available. Travelers are advised to use alternative routes and to stay tuned for further information.
As the investigation continues, authorities intend to uncover more information on what exactly occurred, including how the collision took place and if any other factors played a role. This loss serves as a reminder of the importance of safe and responsible driving practices. Our thoughts go out to the victim’s family and loved ones during this difficult time.
