Kerri Snead Death – According to Maryland authorities, a pedestrian was struck and killed early on Friday morning, December 8, 2023, on the Prince George’s County Outer Loop of Interstate 495. Just before three in the morning, Maryland State Police (MSP) officers were called to the scene of a pedestrian crash near I-95 and Allentown Road. The pedestrian, Kerri Snead, 32, of Virginia, was declared dead at the scene, according to MSP.
The striking vehicle stayed on the site, according to the authorities, and the dryer was sent to the University of Maryland Capital Regional Medical Center to receive medical attention for their wounds. After being closed for a few hours, all Outer Loop lanes have now reopened. The inquiry into the crash’s cause is still ongoing.
Every year, thousands of cars collide on the Capital Beltway; yet, certain sections of the Inner and Outer loops seem to be more hazardous than others. Between September 1, 2017 and August 31, 2018, 3,463 fender benders, side swipes, and pile-ups occurred on the Beltway in Maryland and Virginia, according to the WTOP Traffic Center’s incident database. According to the data, there was a significant increase in the frequency of collisions on the Beltway from south to north, with Montgomery County recording the most number of crashes.
According to traffic figures released by the State Highway Administration of the Maryland Department of Transportation, over 232,000 vehicles used the Beltway between Connecticut Avenue and Georgia Avenue in 2016. The highway’s winding parts across Rock Creek and Sligo Creek, in addition to carrying more traffic than the Prince George’s County portion classified as I-95, probably contribute to the higher rate of accidents.
Kerri Snead’s obituary and funeral arrangements will be released by the family at a later date.
