Prince George’s County police responded to the scene of a serious accident with injury near Church Road and Danube Lane in Bowie, Maryland. The accident occurred during the evening hours of Saturday, September 21.
Few details of the crash were available, but news photos from the accident scene show a badly mangled, tan passenger vehicle crashed into a tree. The entire front end of the car was demolished in the crash, and police had to help extricate the occupants from the vehicle.
All six people involved in the accident suffered serious injuries. At least two of the children were said to be in critical condition, suffering from life-threatening injuries, according to police on the scene of the nighttime accident. Four of the vehicle’s occupants were minors. Family comments on local news articles suggest that the children were older, including one age 12 and one age 16.
No other vehicle appears to have been involved in the accident, but stormy weather may have contributed to the cause of the crash. A Medivac helicopter had been requested to the scene of the accident, but it was unable to fly due to stormy weather. Prince George’s County police are still investigating the circumstances of the serious Prince George’s County car accident.
Weather contributes to numerous car accidents each year. A simple rain shower can severely decrease visibility and cause roads to become slippery, creating dangerous driving conditions for even experienced drivers.
We wish all those injured in this Maryland car accident fast and complete recoveries.
