(Oxon Hill, MD) – Maryland State Police arrested a man this morning in collection with an alleged assault that occurred following a minor two-vehicle crash on I-495 in Prince George’s County.
The accused is identified as Kevin Miller, 29, of Prince Frederick, Maryland. Miller was the operator and sole occupant of a black 2018 Nissan Sentra involved in the crash. After consultation with the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney, Miller is being charged with first degree assault, second degree assault, possession of a handgun in the commission of a felony or crime of violence and reckless endangerment.

She was the sole occupant in the vehicle and refused medical treatment at the scene. Police believe the two individuals involved are unrelated.
Shortly after 5:30 a.m. this morning, troopers from the Maryland State Police Forestville Barrack were dispatched to the scene of a minor crash after a concerned citizen called to report the incident in the roadway in the area of southbound I-495 at Saint Barnabas Road. Subsequent phone calls were received by both individuals involved in the crash advising police of the incident. Both of the callers told police that handguns were brandished after the crash occurred.
Troopers arrived on the scene. They were assisted by officers from the Prince George’s County Police Department. Further investigation on the scene led to the recovery of a handgun and ammunition in Kevin Miller’s vehicle. He was taken into custody and transported to the Forestville Barrack for processing. After consultation with the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney, Miller was charged and transported to Prince George’s County Department of Corrections in Upper Marlboro where he will await an appearance before the court commissioner.
