Prince George's County Officer Suspended After Hit-And-Run, Police Say

The Prince George’s County Police Department said an officer has been suspended while it investigates his suspected role in a hit-and-run while driving an unmarked police cruiser.

The department issued a news release Saturday saying that officers responded Friday night to a report of a hit-and-run crash in the Clinton area. No one was injured in the crash.

Investigators determined that an unmarked cruiser had collided with a house after the officer struck another vehicle. The release said the officer didn't remain on scene following the crash.
