Prince George's County police are investigating a car accident in College Park that left one man dead and two others injured early Sunday.
A 21-year-old driver, whose name has not been released, was traveling northbound in the 9200 block of Baltimore Avenue when Bernard Coatley Jr., 40, attempted to make a left turn from Delaware Street, but failed to yield, according to PGPD Cpl. Larry Johnson.
The cars collided and Coatley Jr. was killed, Johnson said. The 21-year-old driver and one 32-year-old passenger in that car have non-life threatening injuries, but the other 25-year-old passenger was not injured.
Prince George's County police were investigating the cause of the accident, but suspected alcohol and speed played a factor, Johnson said.
