A Bowie man was killed and two others seriously injured in a crash in the Laurel area early Thursday morning, police said.

The crash occurred just before 2 a.m. at Laurel Bowie and Muirkirk roads in the Laurel area, police said.

Officer Evan Baxter, a Prince George's County police spokesman, said three men were traveling north on Laurel Bowie Road when their SUV swerved into a guardrail and rolled over. All three men were ejected, and the driver, 24-year-old David Powell, was struck by the still-rolling vehicle, Baxter said. He was killed, Baxter said.

The other two men were transported to a nearby hospital with serious injuries, Baxter said. They are expected to survive, Baxter said.

Baxter said that preliminarily, investigators think speed and alcohol might have been factors in the crash. He said he did not know how they came to that conclusion.
