17-year-old Accokeek teen killed in single-vehicle crash – Southern Maryland News Net

The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit is investigating a fatal crash that occurred Wednesday morning. The deceased driver is Christopher Sosa, 17, of Accokeek.

On Wednesday, April 27, 2022, at approximately 7:10 a.m., PGPD officers responded to a single-car crash on Accokeek Road near Gardner Road. Both the driver and his passenger were taken to hospital.

Sosa died Wednesday evening in hospital. The passenger suffered injuries which, a priori, are not considered life-threatening.

Preliminary investigation suggests that Sosa crossed a double yellow line in order to pass slower moving vehicles moving north on Accokeek Road.

A Prince George’s County Sheriff’s Deputy observed the traffic violation and briefly activated emergency equipment on his unmarked cruiser.

The investigation suggests that Sosa lost control of his car on a crest in the roadway and crashed. Video captured from a nearby church showed Sosa’s vehicle driving at high speed before losing control and veering off the roadway, hitting several utility poles and overturning several times.

Any questions regarding the Sheriff’s Deputy should be directed to the Prince George’s County Sheriff’s Office.

Anyone who witnessed the accident or has information relevant to the accident investigation is asked to call the Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit at 301-731-4422.
