Suitland man killed in D.C. traffic crash
Police on Thursday identified a 33-year-old man who was killed in a head-on collision on the Suitland Parkway.
The fatal crash occurred around 8 p.m. at Suitland Parkway and Alabama Avenue in Southeast D.C. when Mr. Smith lost control of his 2006 Lincoln Zephyr as he traveled westbound on Suitland Parkway and crossed the median into oncoming traffic, according to police. Mr. Smith’s car collided head on with an oncoming 2006 Nissan Altima, in which three people were traveling.
County fire and EMS personnel were dispatched to the scene as some people who called and reported the crash said it had occurred on a portion of the Suitland Parkway in Prince George’s County, Mr. Brady said. The site of the crash is about a half mile from the border separating the District and Prince George’s County.
“It’s not like D.C. requested us,” Mr. Brady said, referring to recent incidents during which D.C. ambulances have been unavailable and the District had to call upon the county agency to provide ambulance transport.
When county public safety workers arrived, D.C. emergency crews were already on the scene working to get two of the victims out of the wreckage, Mr. Brady said. County personnel transported Mr. Smith and a teenage boy who was injured to hospitals.
The driver of the Nissan and the two passengers were admitted to hospitals in stable condition, police said.
No additional information was available about the cause of the crash.
