Boy, 15, fatally struck in Landover area
A teenage boy was fatally struck by a SUV Tuesday night in the Landover area as he and two friends were running across the street, against a traffic signal, Prince George's County police said.
Authorities who were called to the intersection of Landover Road and Dodge Park Road about 7 p.m. found a 15-year-old, said Cpl. Henry Tippett, a spokesman. The teen, whose name was not released, was taken to Prince George's Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
According to the preliminary investigation, police think the 15-year-old and two friends were running across a crosswalk as the "Don't Walk" signal flashed, and the boy was struck by a Ford Expedition.
The driver stayed at the scene, Tippett said. No other injuries were reported.
