Mystery of the water slide + Closure of the mass vaccination site + Fatal crash
Hello, neighbors! It’s me again, Alexis Goring, your host of the Laurel Daily.
First of all, the weather forecast for the day: Wet and partly cloudy all day. High: 93 Low: 74.
Here are the three best Laurel stories today:
1. With the announcement that 70% of adults in Prince George County are at least partially vaccinated against COVID-19[female[feminine, the state mass vaccination site at Six Flags America in Bowie closed July 10. Earlier this year, more than a dozen mass vaccination sites helped residents of Maryland get vaccinated, but only three will be left on Saturday. (OMCP)
2. Two accidents, a fatal, on practically the same stretch of road Prince George County near DC-Maryland border traffic interrupted for hours throughout Friday afternoon. Two accidents occurred on Route 50 westbound, Between Kenilworth Avenue and South Dakota Avenue. The second accident happened just five minutes after the investigation for the prior deadly accident had been completed. (OMCP)
3. Police in Prince George County, I want to know who stole a very big inflatable slide. The red, blue and yellow inflatable slide disappeared on June 30 from a house to Clinton. The mid-Atlantic chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation had just given it to Jacob, 7, who sickle cell anemia. Anyone with information on the stolen slide is requested to call the police at 301-749-5064. (OMCP)
