Man fled scene of fatal Brandywine car crash, Prince George’s police say

Prince George’s County police said Friday they are looking for a man who fled the scene of a fatal car crash in Brandywine.

Police were called to the 16300 block of McKendree Road at about 10:45 p.m. on Thursday after someone reported a car crash, authorities said. When they arrived, they found the passenger of a Ford Mustang dead after being thrown from the car, but the driver was missing, police said.

“The driver was seen running from the car after the crash,” police said in a statement.

A passenger in the backseat of the car was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, police said.

The car was going east on McKendree Road and hit a utility pole, authorities said. The driver lost control of the car and speed appears to be a factor in the case, according to police.

Police are asking anyone with information about this case to call 301-306-5640 or, to remain anonymous, 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
