Investigators said the driver of a silver 2007 Infinity M35 was traveling southbound on Frederick Road, when he lost control of the car, crossed into the median, and struck a tree prior to stopping in the northbound lanes of Frederick Rd. 

The driver was ejected from the car after the crash. He was taken to an area hospital and later pronounced dead.

Police say the driver, who has not been identified yet, was the only occupant of the vehicle. 

Route 355, between Game Preserve and Wheatfield Drive, was closed as a result of the crash. The road has since reopened.


Police said the crash is still under investigation, and they are asking anyone with information to call them at 240-773-6620.
