Man critically injured in Pr. Geo.'s accident
A 55-year-old man was critically injured Tuesday morning after his car slid on a patch of ice and crashed into a tree in the Lanham-Glenn Dale area of Prince George's County, authorities said.
The man was speeding south in the 8700 block of Springfield Road about 8 a.m. when his car left the roadway and struck the tree, said Cpl. Larry Johnson, a Prince George's County Police Department spokesman. Both the driver's speed and the wet, icy road are believed to have caused the crash, Johnson said.
Johnson said the crash should serve as a reminder that "people got to take their time, especially as temperatures drop tonight."
Driver injured in Pr. Geo.'s vehicle accident
A driver was critically injured in a single-car crash in the Lanham-Glenn Dale area of Prince George’s County Tuesday morning that investigators believe may have been caused by icy road conditions, authorities said.
The driver’s vehicle apparently slid on a patch of ice near the intersection of Springfield and Good Luck roads about 8 a.m. and struck a tree, said Cpl. Larry Johnson, a Prince George’s County police spokesman. He said the driver was taken to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The exact circumstances of the crash remain unclear, Johnson said. He said police had since called in salt trucks to treat the area, and they were asking drivers to “take their time on the roads.”
