Maryland State Police are investigating a two-vehicle crash in which one person died and another was injured Tuesday night in Prince George’s County.
Shortly after 8:25 p.m. Tuesday, March 15, 2022, troopers from the Maryland State Police Forestville Barrack responded to the area of Branch Avenue at Moores Road in Brandywine, Maryland to a report of an accident involving two vehicles.
According to a preliminary investigation, a silver Chevrolet Corvette, driven by Cynthia Lorraine Thompson, 39, of Fort Washington, Maryland, was traveling north on Branch Avenue towards Moores Road. At the same time, a black Acura MDX was traveling south on Branch Avenue towards Moores Road.
Investigators believe Thompson attempted to turn left onto Moores Road and drove directly into the path of the Acura. The Acura crashed into the passenger side of the Chevrolet Corvette. The passenger in the Chevrolet Corvette, identified as James Courtney Jr., 48, of Washington, DC was pronounced dead at the scene.
Thompson was transported to the University of Maryland Capital Regional Medical Center for treatment of her injuries. No other injuries were reported.
No charges have been filed. At the conclusion of the investigation, soldiers will review the case with the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office to determine if charges are warranted.
Southbound lanes on Branch Avenue were closed until 1:15 a.m. after the crash. The Maryland State Police Crash Team continues to investigate the incident
