PGPD Investigates Fatal Car Crash in Lanham

The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit is investigating a fatal car crash in Lanham.  The victim is identified as 51-year-old Jose Osmin Bonilla of the 6200 block of Westbrook Drive in New Carrollton.

On October 23, 2013, at about 12:45 am, patrol officers were called to the 7100 block of Riverdale Road for the report of a collision. When they arrived, they discovered two vehicles had been involved in an apparent head on collision.  Bonilla later died of his injuries at a local hospital.

The preliminary investigation suggests Bonilla was heading eastbound on Riverdale Road in a pickup truck.  For reasons which remain unclear, Bonilla’s pickup crossed into the westbound lanes and struck an SUV. The SUV’s driver suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Preliminarily, alcohol may be a factor in this crash.
