Crash after Md. home invasion
Two suspects fleeing the scene of a home invasion in the Accokeek area were critically injured Tuesday afternoon when they crashed their vehicle minutes after police broke off a chase with them, authorities said.
The incident began at 12:38 p.m., when a woman called police to say two males were breaking into her home in the 2700 block of Medinah Ridge Road, said Cpl. Larry Johnson, a Prince George's County Police spokesman.
The woman was apparently hiding inside the home, Johnson said, and police arrived to find a gold Lexus leaving the scene.
Officers chased the vehicle a short distance, but then broke off the pursuit, Johnson said.
Minutes later -- at about 12:50 p.m. -- the Lexus crashed in the 10800 block of Brandywine Road in the Clinton area, critically injuring the two men inside, Johnson said.
The circumstances of that crash remain unclear, Johnson said. He said police recovered a flat screen TV and other items taken from the home in the vehicle that crashed.
