Park Police Seeking Witnesses To Fatal Car Crash

The United States Park Police is seeking information from anyone who saw a fatal car crash on the Baltimore Washington Parkway that happened on Tuesday May 24, 2011.

On Tuesday May 24, 2011, William K. Ward, a 34 year old Washington, DC resident, died in a car crash that happened northbound Baltimore Washington Parkway north of Riverdale Road. This crash happened at about 6:20 pm.

We received a 911 transfer call from a woman who reported some activity on the side of the road that may have involved the deceased driver and another person. Before we were able to capture her contact information, the call was dropped. We would like her to contact the US Park Police.

We also would like to hear from anyone else who may have seen this activity, or saw a car being operated either very slowly or at a high speed in a reckless fashion.

The area where this crash happened can have cell phones routed to several jurisdictions so some callers may have not had their reports transferred to the US Park Police.

If you have any information, please contact the United States Park Police Criminal Investigations Branch Tip Line at 202-610-8737.
