KETTERING, Md. – Maryland State Police are continuing to investigate a fatal pedestrian crash that occurred Thursday evening in Prince George’s County.

Shortly before 7:45 p.m. on Thursday, troopers from the Maryland State Police Forestville Barrack responded to the area of Central Avenue at Campus Way in Kettering, Maryland for a report of a struck pedestrian.

  1. There is a serious lack of common sense in America today. Just because the light is red doesn’t mean that it’s safe to cross. PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR SURROUNDINGS!!!

  2. Your comments are mean and insensitive. My friend lost her son and the driver of the truck ran the light.

    1. Comments are VERY insensitive!!! The young man had the right of way and he’s getting blamed for a hit and run that claimed his life. These trolls clearly need to get a life. Wonder how they would feel if the shoe was on the other foot. How do you know he didn’t look both ways, go sit down somewhere. This could have been one of your love ones.
