LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County police say a preliminary investigation shows wet conditions and speed played a role in a crash between a car and a taxi in Landover that killed two people.

County fire department spokesman Mark Brady says a car and taxi collided Tuesday about 11:15 a.m. on Pennsy Drive. The taxi remained on the roadway, but the other car split in half. The part of the car with two people inside traveled about 25 feet into a drainage ditch.

One person was pronounced dead at the scene. A second person taken to a trauma center died. Brady says the taxi driver did not appear to be seriously injured.

Brady says snow had just started to fall and the roadway was wet at the time of the crash.
