CAPITOL HEIGHTS, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a man was killed and a teenage girl was seriously injured when an all-terrain vehicle and an SUV collided in Prince George's County.
County police spokesman Officer Harry Bond says the crash occurred Sunday evening at Walker Mill Road and Waterford Drive in Capitol Heights.
Bond says the SUV was trying to turn left when it hit the ATV. Police say the driver of the ATV, 29-year-old Jerome Odom of Capitol Heights, and a teenage girl who was a passenger on the ATV were thrown from the ATV.
They were taken to a hospital, where police say Odom died. Officers say the teenage girl suffered serious injuries. Authorities say neither was wearing a safety helmet.
Police say it is illegal to drive ATVs on county-maintained roads.
