Boy Scout Commissioner Dies After Being Hit When Car Drives Into Restaurant

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — A man has died a week after he was hit by a car that plowed into a restaurant in Upper Marlboro.

Prince George’s County Police said in a statement that 73-year-old Isiah Pugh of Oxon Hill died Tuesday.

The Boy Scouts of America National Capital Area Council also released a statement on Pugh’s death. He was a longtime scouter and the Patuxent District Commissioner, “a well-respected leader and a true friend to Scouting,” the statement said.

“The last conversation I had with Isaiah was about Scouting,” said Patuxent District Chair Judge C. Philip Nichols. “He spoke about how proud he was of the job his Commissioner team was doing in their role supporting the 3,000 Scouts in our District.”

Pugh was one of six people taken to hospitals after the afternoon crash on Oct. 24.

Police say the driver of a car heading southbound on Old Crain Highway in Upper Marlboro tried to make a left turn onto Marlboro Pike. The driver lost control of the vehicle and struck the side of Babes Boys Tavern.

The crash remains under investigation.
