UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — Authorities say two people are dead and one person injured after a car went off an overpass in Prince George’s County.

Police say it happened around 2 a.m. Monday when the driver of a Chevy Tahoe traveling northbound on Indian Head Highway lost control. Police say the car went off the overpass and crashed onto Oxon Hill Road. The car landed on its roof.

Police say one man and one woman were pronounced dead at the scene. Another man was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Police identified the victims as 45-year-old James Monroe Henderson, the car’s driver, and 30-year-old Aayoni Williams.

Police say speed appears to be a factor in the crash.
