The Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit is working to determine the cause of a fatal crash in Accokeek. The victim is 67-year-old James Hill of North Thames Street in Accokeek.
On June 29th, at about 8:50 pm, patrol officers were called to the intersection of Indian Head Highway and Pine Drive for the report of a crash involving three vehicles. The victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition, where he died shortly thereafter.
The preliminary investigation reveals Hill was traveling eastbound on Pine Drive attempting to turn left onto northbound Indian Head Highway. That’s when Hill’s minivan was struck by a Ford heading southbound on Indian Head Highway. A third car then hit the Ford. The Ford’s driver suffered what appears to be non-life-threatening injuries. Prior to the collision, witnesses reported seeing several vehicles speeding and driving in a reckless manner southbound on Indian Head Highway.
