Four injured in six-car collision on Route 210

Prince George’s County police are investigating a collision involving six cars that injured four people Friday on Indian Head Highway, less than a mile from where three children were killed in a crash two weeks ago.

Police spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan said four people were hospitalized following the incident, which occurred just after 9 p.m. near the intersection of Indian Head Highway and Livingston Road.

The highway was the site of a fatal crash Dec. 30 in which a pickup, driven by a man police suspect was intoxicated, slammed into the back of another car. Three siblings, ­5-year-old twins and their 13-month-old brother, were killed; the children’s parents were hospitalized for injuries.

Prince George’s officials have previously asked Maryland state legislators to approve additional safety measures, including speed cameras and more streetlights, along the 13-mile highway also known as Route 210.
