A motorist was killed in a single-car crash south of Damascus on Wednesday. Police said his Hyundai Sonata drifted from the road, struck a large tree and then rolled over before coming to rest on a fence.

At around 8:30 a.m., emergency responders were dispatched to the crash on Laytonsville Road, near Hawkins Creamery Road, police said.

Gaudreau was traveling east on Laytonsville at the time of the crash. Police said it's unclear what caused the vehicle to leave the roadway. Gaudreau was the only person in the car, according to police.

It took rescuers a half hour to free him from the wreckage, Nesselt said.

Maybe he was texting N driving? Someone else was doing it, hit a tree and landed in a lake. So anything is possible
