Orignial article: Two people are reported dead after a fatal crash Monday morning in Glenn Dale.

According to Prince George's Fire/EMS Spokesman Mark Brady, the crash occurred around 8 a.m. in the 10800 block of Lanham-Severn Road.

When rescuers reported to the scene, they found four people injured and transported them to local hospitals. By 9 a.m, Prince George's County Police reported that one of the injured was pronounced dead, one remained in critical condition and two were in serious condition.

Police continued to investigate the crash scene throughout the day, and just after noon, PGPD Spokeswoman Julie Parker announced that a second victim succumbed to their injuries.

At this time, weather remains a possible factor in the crash, police said, as Prince George's County saw several inches of snow and sleet Monday morning. The snow delayed schools for two hours.

Cpl. Larry Johnson, of the Prince George's Police Department, said at this time the ages of the victims are unknown as well as their place of residence. More information will be made public when the crash analysis is completed and next of kin is notified.
