Prince George’s police looking for man in double-fatal crash

Correction: A previous version of this story misspelled the first name of Brittany Everett, who was killed in this crash. This version has been corrected.

A man allegedly fleeing from police in a stolen car is responsible for a crash that killed two women and injured five others in Prince George’s County over the weekend, authorities said.

Prince George’s police have issued an arrest warrant for Ronald Jerome Hayes Jr., 18, of the District.

He is wanted on charges of manslaughter, theft and other crimes in connection with the Saturday crash that killed Brittany Everett, 23, of the District, and Brittney Queen, 21, of Capitol Heights.

The incident began at the 7000 block of Walker Mill Road after patrol officers responded to a call about shots fired in the area. Hayes was at the scene but took off, and officers followed, police said. Moments later, Hayes slammed into a van, police said. He then ran from the scene.

Everett and Queen were in the van with four other people, including two children, police said. All four were injured and taken to a hospital. They were reportedly in stable condition as of Tuesday evening. A passenger riding with Hayes also was taken to the hospital.
