Police Locate Vehicle Involved In Fatal Crash Of Tow Truck Driver

David Alvarez In Prince George’s County


TEMPLE HILLS, Md. (WJZ) — Maryland State Police have found the vehicle involved in the fatal hit-and-run crash that killed a tow truck driver last week in Prince George’s County.


Police believe the vehicle involved is a 2004 white Cadillac Escalade. It was found at Maryland Route 3 and Route 175 in Gambrills in Anne Arundel County Sunday afternoon.


The driver’s identity is pending further investigation, police said.


The victim is David Reinerio Pineda Alvarez, 63, of Washington, D.C. He was declared dead on the scene by Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department.


He was a tow truck operator who was helping a disabled vehicle on the shoulder of the road when he was fatally hit.

Alvarez was exiting his vehicle and walking up to the vehicle with the flat tire, which was on the shoulder of the road near Branch Avenue and Coventry Way in Temple Hills, when a driver hit the disabled vehicle, Alvarez and possibly the tow truck, police said.


The tow truck had its lights flashing and was on the shoulder of the road at the time of the crash, police said.

I remember the case where New York tow truck operator, Sal Brescia, was killed in December 2016. That suspect vehicle was found and led police to a suspect after good old fashioned police work matched three small pieces of plastic lense to the box truck that struck Sal. Now that the suspect vehicle from this case has been found, I'm hoping it isn't long before a suspect is in custody.     R.
