A Lexington Park teenager who volunteered as a student intern at the St. Mary’s sheriff’s office died Saturday night, the agency reports, when the car he was driving went across the centerline of Route 5 in Park Hall and collided with an oncoming car.
Tyler Brett Mattingly, 17, was traveling north on the highway at 8:24 p.m. Saturday in a 1999 Ford Crown Victoria when he lost control of the vehicle on wet pavement and it veered into the path of a 2007 Toyota Corolla driven by Lindsay Marie Lague, 20 of Lexington Park, the sheriff’s office reported on Monday. Mattingly died at the scene from his injuries, and Lague and a passenger in her vehicle, 21-year-old Michael Anthony Dillon of Lexington Park, were flown by a helicopter crew to the Prince George’s Hospital Center to be treated for non life threatening injuries.
Speed and weather appear to be contributing factors in the collision, sheriff’s deputies report from their preliminary investigation. The sheriff’s office has requested that anyone who may have witnessed the accident contact Cpl. Brian Connelly by calling 301-475-4200, ext. 9010.
