The Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit is investigating a fatal crash in Adelphi on Tuesday. The victim’s name will be released once his family is located and notified.
On August 8th, at about 6:20 am, patrol officers were called to the 10000 block of Riggs Road for the report of a crash involving two cars.
The preliminary investigation reveals the victim was heading northbound on Riggs Road when for reasons which remain under investigation, his car crossed the center line and ultimately struck a second car in the southbound lanes.
