The Prince George's County Police Department's Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit is investigating a fatal collision in Upper Marlboro. The victims are identified as 19-year-old Aarrayn Perez of Ranch Road in Upper Marlboro, and 66-year-old Barbara Armes of 19th Street in Southeast Washington.
On August 15, 2014, at about 8:30 pm, patrol officers were called to the intersection of Ritchie Marlboro Road and North Riding Road for the report of a crash involving two cars. Perez and Armes, the driver and passenger in one car, were both pronounced dead on the scene.
The preliminary investigation suggests Perez was driving a Lexus on North Riding Road approaching Ritchie Marlboro Road. Investigators believe Perez failed to yield the right of way while attempting to turn from North Riding Road onto northbound Ritchie Marlboro Road. A Nissan travelling southbound on Ritchie Marlboro Road struck the Lexus.
The driver of the Nissan was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
