Prince George’s County Police say they are investigating a fatal motorcycle crash that occurred in College Park earlier this month on June 3.


According to the “PGPD News” blog, 19-year-old Fernando Gonzalez y Gonzales of Beltsville was traveling westbound on Cherry Hill Rd, near Park Drive, when a driver in a car made a U-turn into his path. Officers responded at about 8:45 pm. The car’s driver and passengers were not injured in the collision. They remained on the scene.


Gonzalez y Gonzales was taken to the hospital, where he died over a week later, on June 12. The site of the crash is decorated with flowers and handmade signs in Spanish, including Bible quotes and heartfelt messages.
