Five hurt in Brandywine crash
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.
