A BMW smashed into a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant Monday night in Prince George’s County, killing the driver and injuring two others.
The accident occurred at about 6:30 p.m., when the driver of the BMW veered off Martin Luther King Jr. Highway, hit another vehicle, then crashed through the window of the carryout restaurant in Landover.
County police said the unidentified, 29-year-old female driver of the BMW was traveling “at a high rate of speed” when the accident occurred.
The car also hit some trash cans outside a gas station as it veered off the road and a vehicle backing out of a parking space at the KFC.
The BMW driver was ejected upon impact and declared dead at the scene. Her passenger, a 31-year-old man, and the driver of the vehicle that was hit, a 68-year-old man, were both taken to a local hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.
Police also said they are looking into whether alcohol consumption was a factor.
