The search is on for a man involved in a fatal hit-and-run crash in Brandywine, Maryland, Thursday night — the second fatal hit-and-run in the Brandywine area this week.
The latest crash happened around 8:45 p.m. Thursday on Branch Avenue. Maryland State Police said a man driving a GMC Sierra pickup truck was traveling eastbound on Moores Road, when he collided with a car driven by 24-year-old Terron Lamb of Upper Marlboro, who had been driving north on Branch Avenue.
Lamb was taken to a nearby hospital where he later died of his wounds.
The driver of the pickup fled the scene. Police had canine teams and even a helicopter searching for him overnight, but he had not been found as of Friday morning.
This crash happened less than 5 miles away from another fatal hit and run crash on Wednesday.
Prince George’s County police found a bicyclist had been struck and killed at the intersection of Accokeek Road and McKendree Road on Wednesday morning.
Investigators believed the striking driver hit 38-year-old John Gullickson of Accokeek from the rear, leaving Gullickson on the side of the road.
He was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.
