PGPD Investigating Fatal Car Crash

Updated May 9, 2013:  The victim in the fatal car crash is identified as 17-year-old Delanta Clark Jr, of the 10800 block of Slippery Elm Court in Clinton.

The Prince George’s County Police Department is investigating a fatal car crash in Clinton.

On May 8, 2013, shortly after 3:00 pm, patrol officers responded to the 11900 block of Brandywine Road for a single car crash. Upon arrival, patrol officers found the 17-year-old male driver unresponsive inside the car. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

The preliminary investigation reveals the teenager was driving on Brandywine Road when he lost control of his car, left the roadway and struck a tree. The Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit is investigating why he initially lost control. At this time, weather does not appear to be a factor. The victim was wearing his seat belt.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit at (301) 731-4422.
