PGPD Investigating Fatal Collision in Fort Washington

The Collision Analysis and Reconstruction unit is investigating a fatal collision involving a bicyclist in Fort Washington. The deceased rider is 31-year-old Kaleab Yehenew of Oxon Hill. 

On September 1, 2022, at approximately 11:10 pm, officers responded to Indian Head Highway near Fort Washington Road for a collision involving a car and bicyclist. Yehenew, who was riding the bicycle, was transported to the hospital where he died on September 4, 2022. The driver of the car was not transported to a hospital from the scene. 

The investigation revealed that both Yehenew and the driver were heading northbound on Indian Head Highway. Preliminarily, it appears Yehenew was riding the bike in the center lane when the collision occurred. Investigators are working to determine the circumstances leading up to the collision.
