One Dead Following Three-Vehicle Collision on Route 5 in Prince George’s County

Prince George County recorded a fatality after three vehicles collided. The collision on Route 5 occurred on Tuesday night, November 23rd. The primary cause of the accident was not immediately available, but one of the drivers involved appeared to have lost control of their vehicle. 

In a press release, the Maryland State Police said at about 7:45 p.m., troopers with the Forrestville Barrack responded to a report of a multi-vehicle accident on northbound Maryland Route 5. The crash site was north of Coventry Way in Clinton. The preliminary inquiry revealed that Jabbor Nakym Sheffield, 25, of Lanham, drove a 2012 Infiniti G37X north on Route 5. 

The man then lost control of the vehicle, causing him to strike the back of a 2014 Fiat 500L. After the Infiniti rested, a 2015 Kia Sorento hit it on the driver’s side. Sheffield passed away at the accident scene. The male driver of the Kia sustained injuries and received treatment at the University of Maryland Capital Regional Medical Center in Largo, Maryland. 

The female driver of the Fiat received treatment for her injuries at United Medical Center in Washington, D.C. The collision led to the closure of northbound Route 5 for about four hours while the MSP investigated and cleared the scene. The road reopened at about 2 a.m. on Wednesday, November 24th. The collision on Route 5 remains under investigation.
