Police Seek Information in Fatal Collision in Accokeek

Prince George’s County, Maryland…The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit (CARU) is investigating the fatal collision that occurred early this morning in Accokeek, Maryland.

On September 16, 2011, at approximately 1:30 a.m., patrol officers responded to the 15900 block of Indian Head Highway for a report of a multiple vehicle crash. Upon arrival, patrol officers found Maurice Eric Proctor, 43, deceased after his vehicle collided with a tractor-trailer.

Preliminary investigation revealed that Proctor, of the 15000 block of Overlea Court in Accokeek, was traveling in a Ford Crown Victoria southbound on Indian Head Highway approaching Livingston Road. The Crown Victoria then struck a Honda Civic, also travelling southbound, causing the Civic to veer off the roadway. After striking the Civic, the Crown Victoria crossed over the median, onto northbound Indian Head Highway, where it was struck by an oncoming tractor-trailer. Proctor was then trapped inside the Crown Victoria which caught on fire. Proctor was pronounced deceased on scene. The driver of the Civic was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

CARU investigators are seeking any information regarding a large, older model, sedan that may have been racing with Proctor just prior to the collision. Investigators are also looking for information from anyone who may have witnessed, or been in the area, at the time of the collision.
