A Boyds man was killed in an early morning crash in Clarksburg today, according to the Montgomery County Police.

Police say Daehyung Chong, 18, of Boyds, was driving south on Frederick Rd. when his car crossed into the northbound lanes near Running Brook Dr., hitting a power pole around 3:12 a.m., according to police.

Passenger Tae Kyo Seo, 18, also of Boyds, was pronounced dead at the scene; Chong was taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Both were wearing seatbelts, police said.

Police continue to investigate; the reason why Chong's car crossed into the northbound lanes is not currently known.
