HYATTSVILLE, Md. (WUSA9) -- A man and woman have died after two vehicles were involved in an accident in Prince George's County on Friday morning.

Police tell us that the male driver of a Camry died at the scene. He had been making a left turn from Drexel Street onto Riggs Road when his car was struck by an Acura that was driving southbound on Riggs Rd.

A female passenger inside his vehicle was transported to the hospital with life threatening injuries, according to police. She later died at the hospital.
