BRANDYWINE, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County police are identifying a 23-year-old killed in a single-car accident in Brandywine in which the driver fled from the scene.
Police on Saturday identified the man who died as Brendan Munnerlyn of Waldorf.
Police say Munnerlyn was a passenger in a car that crashed around 10:45 p.m. Thursday on McKendree Road. Police say the driver ran off the road and crashed into a utility pole.
