Two people died after a speeding car crossed the median on the Prince William Parkway and hit another vehicle Saturday night, according to police. A third person suffered serious injuries, but is expected to recover.
The parkway was closed for several hours Saturday night between Interstate 95 and Summerland Drive as investigators worked at the scene.
At 8:50 p.m. the driver of a 2006 Honda Civic was reportedly speeding westbound in that area of the parkway when he lost control of the car and veered across the median, according to police spokesperson Nathan Probus. The Civic struck a 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage that was traveling eastbound.
The driver of the Civic, 20-year-old Kevin Jonathan Martinez, of Woodbridge, was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger in the Mirage, Montae Griffith, 24, of Fort Washington, Md., also was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Mirage, a 20-year-old of Fort Washington, was flown to an area hospital.
It is unknown at this time if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the wreck, Probus said.
