It happened at about 11:25 p.m. in the 1500 block of Dilston Road, when a white 1994 Volkswagen Jetta veered from the street near Avenel Road. The victim, who was not wearing a seat belt, was riding in the front passenger seat.

The driver of the Jetta, Jose Ovidio Martinez Lopez, 25, was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police are investigating what caused the car to leave the roadway.

Detectives from the Collision Reconstruction Unit ask anyone who saw the crash to call 301-840-2435.
