BY PAULA MINAERT — A Thanksgiving Day tragedy unfolded in the Hyattsville Home Depot parking lot. A 79-year-old driver had what police are calling a “medical emergency” and lost control of his car, hitting six pedestrians and sending five to the hospital. Two of them have since died: Fredys Castilio-Giron, 41, of Hyattsville, and Jose Cristino Sanchez-Rosa, of Falls Church, Va., who is believed to be about the same age, according to police reports. The store, located at 3301 East West Highway, was closed for the November 24 holiday. Photo courtesy TBD.
