A Maryland driver died on February 20 after crashing her car in Landover while reportedly traveling approximately 100 mph on city streets. The crash occurred when the 29-year-old driver hit a curb and cartwheeled 100 yards before smashing into an SUV parked in front of a Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) restaurant, sending the vehicle into the restaurant, according to ABC2News.com.
The driver died at the scene of the crash, while the occupant of the SUV and the passenger in the cartwheeled vehicle suffered non-life threatening injuries. According to the reports, smashing into the SUV prevented the speeding vehicle from directly crashing into the KFC and causing further injuries. Although the impact of the crash sent the SUV into the KFC, no one inside the restaurant was injured during the crash. The driver of the SUV had just entered his vehicle after leaving the restaurant when the car crashed into his. Fortunately, his injuries were relatively minor despite the speed of the moving car.
It is currently unknown if there were any other factors at play in this Maryland fatal auto accident or why the driver was traveling so fast on a city street. Police are continuing an investigation of the incident.
