The Prince George’s County police said in a statement Monday a single-car crash killed two passengers on Lottsford Vista Road, in Lanham.
The police said in a statement that David Diaz Martinez, 25, of Hyattsville, and Jaime San Jose Sical, 25, of Plainfield, New Jersey were killed when the driver lost control of the car they were riding in and hit a tree at about 7:30 p.m. The car crossed the double yellow line into the eastbound lanes to pass another car and lost control when it returned to the westbound lanes, the police said.
