62-year-old killed in Landover crash

LANDOVER, Md. (WUSA9) -- Prince George's County police are investigating a fatal car accident that killed a 62-year-old in Landover.

It happened on June 7 at about 10:20 p.m. at the intersection of Landover Road and Kenmore Drive, police say. The accident involved two SUVs.

Preliminary investigation suggests that a Ford Explorer was stopped at a traffic light on southbound Landover Road. Louise McFadden, of Dellwood Avenue in Glenarden, was also traveling southbound on Landover Road and rear ended the Explorer, police say.
