Man dies in Montgomery County crash

By Erica Johnston


Update, 8:35 p.m.:

A 33-year-old man died Thursday night after the SUV he was riding in struck a tree in the Laytonsville area of Montgomery County, authorities said.

Earlier:

A man was critically injured Thursday and two other people were seriously injured when an SUV struck a tree in the Laytonsville area. The accident forced authorities to shut down Georgia Avenue for hours.

The vehicle, a Cadillac Escalade, crashed in the 21500 block of Georgia Avenue about 5:30 p.m., said Officer Melanie Brenner, a spokeswoman for the Montgomery County police.

The critically injured man was taken to Montgomery General Hospital.

The driver, a woman in her 40s, also suffered injuries described as potentially life threatening, said Capt. Oscar Garcia, a spokesman for the county fire department. Another passenger, a man, suffered injuries not believed to be life threatening, Garcia said. They were both taken to Suburban Hospital.

FYI, WaPo, the area you describe is nowhere near Laytonsville. It's reporting and writing like this that explains why I no longer subscribe to the Post.
