A crash killed two people and left another in serious condition in Kettering Monday afternoon, according to Prince George's County officials.

The multi-vehicle crash closed Central Avenue in the area of Rt. 193 near Six Flags.

Police say two tractor trailers and a Honda Civic were behind one another and  stopped at a red light at Cameron Grove Road when a fourth vehicle, a concrete pumper truck, crashed into the back of the Civic.

According to investigators, the Civic was crushed between the concrete pumper truck and the second tractor trailer, trapping the driver and passenger of the Civic. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

The impact of the accident pushed the second tractor trailer into the rear of the tractor trailer in front of it.

The drivers of the remaining vehicles were treated for non life-threatening injuries.
