Women hospitalized after Pr. Geo. crash

By Debbi Wilgoren

This post has been updated.

Two women remain hospitalized Monday morning after the car in which they were riding crashed as they reportedly fled from police, authorities said.

Prince George's County police spokesman Corporal Clinton Copeland said the women were in a car in the 6300 block of Baltimore Avenue (Route 1) near East West Highway (Route 410) shortly before 2 a.m.

Copeland said a citizen alerted an officer with the Riverdale Park Police to what he thought was suspicious activity in a nearby parking lot. As the officer walked to the car, the driver sped off and crashed soon after, ejecting the two women before police arrived at the scene, Copeland said.

Earlier reports indicating that one of the women had died were incorrect, Copeland said.

6:34 a.m.
A woman was killed early Monday in the Prince George's County town of Riverdale, when the car in which she was riding crashed as it tried to elude police, WRC-TV (Channel 4) reported.

The crash closed Route 410 (East-West Highway) near the intersection with Kenilworth Avenue during the first part of the morning rush.

Riverdale police had been looking for the vehicle after a theft suspect who they were chasing on foot got into the vehicle and fled, WRC said.

Police found the car after it had crashed, and one of its two occupants had been ejected, WRC reported. Both occupants of the car were women, police told the station. One woman was killed; the other was injured.

East-West Highway was reopened to traffic about 6:30.

Given the time of the event, it was more likely a minor traffic violation or a potential DUI that made the driver run. Let's just wait until the details are released before passing judgment on whether they are legal or or illegal.

Just when I thought you had went away I see you're still around with your racist comments. I bet you think only "illegals" commit all the crimes in the World.

@what90023:

You whining bleeding heart liberal. It's a shame that both of them weren't killed. It'd save our society time and money.

@Darwin: You're slacking my friend. Please start taking out the trash!

As a matter of fact, they were not Illegal. Like GP04 stated, until further details is provide, there is no need for all this nonsense opinion. Find something better to comment to!

So the measure of our humanity is who can deal the most vicious words of harm to another? This comment is not directed to any status of law or legal status, but to the basic core of how we act to another person.

As this becomes the new standard of our civility, don't be surprised when it is returned to you. Your suffering will help satisfy someone else.

So one poster says he bets money that this involved illegals and another accuses him of being "Racist" Calling someone that is here illegally and "Illegal" is NOW a Racist thing to say? Funny, that USED to be called "the TRUTH"!We are now SO politically correct that truth is now completely Verbotten!. That is a very sad place to be. They use to enforce laws like this in the Old USSR. Politically correct is just another way of shutting up those that want to only speak the truth.
