Five hurt in Brandywine crash

Washington Post Editors

A one-year-old was critically injured in a single-vehicle crash in the Brandywine area of Prince George’s County that sent a total of five people to area hospitals, police and fire officials said.

The crash occurred just after 4 p.m. in the 6600 block of Floral Park Road, said Cpl. Henry Tippett, a Prince George’s County Police Department spokesman.

He said five people — two adults and three children — were traveling in a two-door Ford Probe that apparently left the roadway and struck a tree or other off road object.

The adults and two of the children, believed to be about 9 or 10 years old, were transported to area hospitals in stable condition, he said.

The one-year-old, who was unresponsive on the scene, was flown to a hospital with life threatening injuries, he said.

It remains unclear why the car left the roadway, Tippett said. The police department’s collision reconstructionists have been called to the scene.

Be interesting to know how many guns the Mexican drug cartels eventually acquire from sources in Virginia.
