Fatal bicycle collision

Prince George’s County Police are investigating a fatal bicycle collision that occurred in Hyattsville on Nov. 22, they wrote in a news release Wednesday.

Luciano Crespo Rodriguez, 47, of Bladensburg, was riding his bicycle on Hamilton Street near Queens Chapel Road when he collided with a vehicle that was passing through an intersection about three miles from the University of Maryland, according to the release. A preliminary investigation led police to believe Crespo Rodriguez did not stop at a red light, the release read.

He was rushed to the hospital, but died of his injuries several days later, according to the release. The vehicle’s driver was not injured.
