Maryland Independent - - Front Page - By AN­DREW RICHARD­SON arichard­son@somd­news.com

A man was killed in a three-ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent dur­ing the early hours Satur­day in Ac­co­keek, and po­lice are con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate the fa­tal col­li­sion.

Au­thor­i­ties have iden­ti­fied the man as Jaylen Wil­liams, 21, of Up­per Marl­boro, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease. The other two driv­ers were both taken to the hospi­tal to be treated for non-life threat­en­ing in­juries.

Around 1:15 a.m. on Oct. 15, of­fi­cers

of the Prince Ge­orge’s Po­lice Depart­ment re­sponded to the crash at the in­ter­sec­tion of In­dian Head High­way and Berry Road, the re­lease states. Upon ar­rival, they found Wil­liams suf­fer­ing from se­vere in­juries, and he was pro­nounced dead on the scene.

Pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion showed that Wil­liams was trav­el­ing north­bound on In­dian Head High­way, ap­proach­ing the in­ter­sec­tion of Berry Road, as two cars were turn­ing left from the south­bound lanes of In­dian Head High­way onto Berry Road, ac­cord­ing to po­lice. Wil­liams re­port­edly ran a red light and struck both cars as they crossed the in­ter­sec­tion.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on this col­li­sion is asked to call the Col­li­sion Anal­y­sis and Re­con­struc­tion Unit at 301-7314422.
