Two children killed in fiery Route 50 crash

Two children were killed Friday night in a fiery car crash on Route 50 in Prince George’s County, authorities said.

The crash occurred shortly before 10 p.m. in the eastbound lanes near Martin Luther King Jr. highway, said Maj. Paul Cruz, a county fire department spokesman.

Three cars were involved in the crash, Cruz said. One of the vehicles caught fire, and the children were apparently both in that car, he said.

The names of the victims were not available immediately.

All of the eastbound lanes and two westbound lanes were shut down after the crash, Cruz said.
