Authorities say that four people have died, including a child, and others have been injured after a van caught fire in a crash with a pickup truck in a Maryland suburb of the nation’s capital.
The accident occurred Sunday afternoon on a road in Hyattsville. Marc Bashoor, chief of the Prince George’s County Fire Department, said via Twitter that three adults and one child were confirmed as fatalities.
WTTG-TV reported that the Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Company is reporting at least 11 serious injuries, and that a passenger van caught fire after the crash.
Crews from others counties were aiding in the response.
