Two Boys Die in Fiery Crash near Glenarden


Charges are pending against the driver who police say rear ended a vehicle on Route 50 near Glen Arden Friday-killing two boys.

Eleven year old Anthony Vindel and his 2 year old brother Delonte Mckie, Jr. died in the inferno.
Their mother, Gloria Vindel, was burned on her face and hands trying to get them out of the car before flames forced her back.

Investigators say the incident began after Vindel ran into the back of a vehicle driven by Mahmoud Sesay. As she and Sesay got out to exchange information, police say William Lewis of Bowie ran into both cars, igniting Vindel's vehicle and trapping and killing her sons.

"I can't think of a day in the last six months, when I didn't see them both. And now to think that I won't see them again.. is very difficult,"Mellanese Alexander says. She and Vindel are team moms for the PG Chargers football team. Anthony was star player. His teammates held a practice in his honor Saturday.

Coach Tyrone Jackson had the difficult task of breaking the news to the boys that their friend wouldn't be back.

"I told them to go home and hug their family today, because no one knows what tomorrow will bring,"Jackson says.

The Chargers vow not to let number 55 be forgotten.

"Everything we do from here on out will be in Anthony's honor,"Coach Jackson says.

Maryland State Troopers have turned over all the evidence in the case to the State's Attorney who will decide on charges.
