Officials still investigating crash that left 11 injured and one car on fire in Prince George’s

Maryland State Police on Monday said they are still working to determine the cause of a Sunday crash that shut down Route 301 for six hours and sent 11 people to the hospital.

An initial investigation shows that the driver of a Mercury Marauder going north on Route 301 at Clymer Drive crossed the median into oncoming traffic and hit a pickup truck head on, according to authorities. The accident then caused four other cars to crash and left one car on fire.

Police say 23-year-old Seth M. Nesbitt of Waldorf was driving the Mercury Marauder.

Authorities were still interviewing witnesses as of Monday afternoon, police said.
