Thomas J. Ewing, 44, the assistant home delivery manager for Prince George's County in the circulation department of The Washington Post, was fatally injured Jan. 12 in a traffic accident at St. Barnabas and Wheeler roads near Marlow Heights.

Prince George's County police said Mr. Ewing was westbound on St. Barnabas Road when a truck heading in the opposite direction turned left onto Wheeler. Mr. Ewing's car struck the rear of the truck and he was pinned in his vehicle, police said. He was pronounced dead at Greater Southeast Community Hospital. Investigators said charges were pending against the driver of the truck.

Mr. Ewing, who lived in Accokeek, was born in Pittsburgh. He attended the University of Pittsburgh. He moved to the Washington area in 1960 and went to work at the old Washington Star, where he became Maryland home delivery manager. He joined The Post when The Star closed in 1981.

Mr. Ewing was a former president and baseball commissioner of the Lewisdale Boys Club.

Survivors include his wife, Carole, of Accokeek; five children, Rhonda Clement of Randall's Cliff, Md., Sharon Ward of Largo, and Thomas J. Jr., Karen Marie and A. Christian, all of Accokeek, and two grandchildren.
