CHEVERLY, Md. (WJLA) - A two-car accident on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway killed two people and sent four to a nearby hospital. Police say one of those involved had an outstanding warrant for a probation violation for homicide. 

The accident happened around 2 a.m. Thursday. Police found a Ford truck on the right shoulder of the ramp to Route 202 and a white Infinity on its roof in the northbound lanes. 

Two passengers of the Infinity, Angel D'Angela Barbour, 21, and Kiana Lorrane Wiggins, 34, were pronounced dead on the scene. A third passenger, Seth DeBose, was transported to Prince George's Hospital Center in critical condition. The driver of the Infinity, Charles "CJ" Wiggins, was transported with minor injuries and has since been released.

The Adams sisters, who are family friends of the victims, say had a terrible feeling -- even before they learned about the accident.

"I just had a feeling that something happened to somebody, but I didn't know who it was," said Wanda Adams.

"I'm devastated for what happened, and there's five kids out there that don't have a mom," added Aletha Adams.

According to family members, Kiana and CJ had married last September and were raising four children. Barbour had a two-year-old daughter.

DeBose, who remains hospitalized, was dating Barbour, relatives say.

Family and relatives believe the group was returning home after celebrating Kiana's 34th birthday at Applebee's. 

Charles Wiggins is CJ Wiggins' father. He was too upset to speak on camera, but he and the Adams family, who've been close family friends for decades, say that learning about the driver of the other vehicle is making this even harder.

The male driver and female passenger of the Ford truck fled the scene on foot but were later found with minor injuries. The driver, Terry Dean Trice, is now in custody at Prince George's Hospital Center.

The crash closed the northbound lanes for several hours as U.S. Park Police investigated.
