A 42-year-old man died early Thursday morning from injuries sustained after the vehicle he was driving hit a tree in the Glen Burnie area.
Rafet Gerigiden of the unit block of Marley Neck Road in Glen Burnie was trapped in the vehicle with extensive injuries and pronounced dead at the scene on Route 10 near Furnace Branch Road, police said.
Officers responded at 1:43 a.m. to a report of a collision and found a 2004 Ford Ranger pickup off the road in the woods.
The initial investigation showed that the driver was traveling south on Route 10, when his vehicle left the road for unknown reasons and continued into a wooded area, until it struck a tree. Preliminary investigators said rain and wet pavement may have contributed to the accident.
