A tragic collision on Route 4 early this morning has claimed the lives of three individuals, all former high school football players. The accident occurred around 3:15 AM on the northbound lane near a residential area. State police report that the victims were traveling in a Dodge Charger when their vehicle was struck by a speeding silver Infiniti attempting to change lanes.

Collision Impact

The force of the crash was catastrophic. The Dodge Charger was thrown off the road, hitting several trees before coming to rest on a service road adjacent to the highway.

Fortunately, the driver of the Impala was not injured.

The driver of the Dodge Charger was identified as 23-year-old Isaiah Hazel Marber. The front-seat passenger, 24-year-old Tyree Jackson of Waldo, and the backseat passenger, 24-year-old Anthony Litton, were also in the vehicle. Both Marber and Jackson died at the scene, while Litton succumbed to his injuries later at a hospital.

The victims were well-known in the community as former football players for Henry J. Wise High School in Upper Marlboro. They were celebrated athletes and part of state championship teams, leaving behind a legacy that deeply impacted their school and the local community.
