Teen Dies in Prince George’s County Accident Days after Buying New Car
Posted on Jun 08, 2013
The Maryland car crash lawyers of Nickelsporn and Lundin recently learned of the tragic loss of a young man in a Maryland car accident. The story is below:
A 17-year-old teenage boy died on Wednesday, May 8, when he lost control of his new car and crashed. Delante Glenn Clark, Jr. died in a single-car crash in Clinton.
Clark, a junior at Surrattsville High School, was driving his new white Acura that he had just purchased over the weekend. He had recently taken a restaurant job to afford to buy his own car.
According to police reports, a call came in around 3 p.m. of a single-car accident along the 11900 block of Brandywine Road. For reasons that are still unknown, Clark had apparently lost control of the vehicle as he traveled along the winding road.
Clark veered off the roadway and crashed into a tree. Emergency personnel rushed to the scene, but Clark was unresponsive and was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Neighbors in the area say that particular stretch of Brandywine Road has been the scene of several tragic accidents.
Clark, whom peers referred to by his middle name, was a member of the local JROTC and a member of the school’s football team. He also volunteered as a one-on-one student assistant for a special needs student.
Clark is survived by his parents, Delante Sr. and Leslie Clark; younger brother, Famous Clark; grandparents, Willie and Linda Clark and Gail Johnson-Robinson; uncles, Frank Johnson, Dwayne and Darryl Clark; and aunt, Crystal Jackson. A private service was held.
The attorneys of Nickelsporn and Lundin express our deepest sympathies to the family in their time of grief.
