PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY – Two people were killed and two others were injured Saturday in two separate accidents in the county.
Just after 3 a.m., fire/EMS units, along with police units from Prince George's County, responded to the 6500 block of Columbia Park Road across from Fairmount Heights High School for a report of a car that crashed into a tree with people trapped.
According to fire and police officials on the scene, when units arrived they found two adult males trapped inside the vehicle. Once paramedics and firefighters were able to reach the victims, who police have identified as 32-year-old Marcus Antonio Jackson and 19-year-old Terrell Cord, both of Meigs Place in Northeast Washington, they determined that both victims had suffered fatal injuries. Both victims were pronounced dead on the scene.
A preliminary investigation revealed that Jackson was driving eastbound on Columbia Park Road when, for reasons that remain under investigation, his car crossed the centerline and ultimately struck a tree.
Later that night, units from Prince George's County Fire Station 847, along with patrol units from the county police department, responded to the 12400 block of Livingston Road near Old Fort Road for a report of a motor vehicle accident.
Upon arrival, paramedics and firefighters reported a vehicle had crashed into a utility pole with three people still inside. Once they were able to reach the three victims they determined that one of the victims, who police have identified as 24-year-old Ibriahim Jalloh of Hollywood Road in Falls Church, Va., had suffered fatal injuries. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
The other two passengers suffered what preliminarily appear to be minor injuries, fire officials said.
A preliminary investigation revealed the victim was driving eastbound on Livingston Road when his car exited the roadway and struck a utility pole.
