A Kia Collides With a Toyota Camry Catching Fire In a Hit and Run Car Accident Resulting in Death
In the quiet hours of early Wednesday morning, tragedy struck in Prince George’s County around 2:30 am. Authorities were alerted to a deadly hit-and-run crash, leaving two individuals dead. The scene of the accident was near the intersection of Landover Road and 63rd Place in Cheverly. The incident quickly became a fiery one, with flames engulfing the area.
The accident left two people dead and the driver of a stolen Kia on the run who had fled the scene quickly after. Police reported that the unidentified driver in the Kia that was heading northbound on Landover Road crashed into the other vehicle, a Toyota Camry containing the two victims. The Camry was attempting to turn left onto southbound Landover Road. This incident caused both cars to catch fire, and unfortunately, the driver and passenger of the Toyota did not survive the collision.
