PGPD Investigating Fatal Pedestrian Collision in Upper Marlboro

The Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit is investigating a fatal pedestrian collision in Upper Marlboro. The victim is 76-year-old Gregory Scott Pharr of Park Road in Upper Marlboro. 

On June 24th, at about 12:30 pm, patrol officers were called to the intersection of Watkins Park Drive at Chesterton Drive for a collision involving an SUV and a pedestrian.
