Police Investigating Fatal Collision at Troubled Intersection



Montgomery County Police are investigating a fatal collision involving a pedestrian at the intersection of Great Seneca Highway and Middlebrook Road.

The MCPD Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating a crash which occurred at prior to 10:44 am on Tuesday morning June 20. Police confirmed that the crash which involved two vehicles also took the life of an adult male pedestrian. Police have not yet identified the deceased male.


The collision resulted in a silver Toyota Sequoia SR5 facing westbound in the far lane of the eastbound lane of Middlebrook Road and striking a tree on the sidewalk near Seneca Valley High School. The Toyota showed heavy damage to its front end and windshield. A second vehicle, a gray Ford Expedition ended up in the middle of the intersection with damage to the passenger side front end. It is unknown at this time which vehicle struck the pedestrian or where the pedestrian was at the time of the collision.

Investigators from the Collision Reconstruction Unit are investigating the incident. As of 1:30 pm on Tuesday, all lanes of eastbound Middlebrook Road remain closed, and one lane of westbound Middlebrook Road open to traffic. Great Seneca Highway is closed in both directions from Middlebrook to Wisteria Drive.

This intersection was the scene of another multi-vehicle crash back on May 2. That crash which happened during the evening rush involved seven vehicles and left six people, including an 11-month-old infant and a 2-year-old girl with serious injuries.
