Jason D. Ham, 31, of Delta, Pa., was driving east on Route 40 west of Joppa Road at about 1:30 a.m. when his 2000 Nissan Frontier went off the road for unknown reasons and ended up in a ditch, according to a Maryland State Police news release.
The car then struck an embankment, becoming slightly airborne and striking a BGE pole on the passenger side, according to the release.
The force of the impact caused the car to spin clockwise across Joppa Road, striking a curb and another BGE light support pole, State Police said.
Mr. Ham was pronounced dead at 1:57 a.m. by paramedics.
A 19-year-old Churchville woman was killed Thursday morning in her neighborhood when a truck collided with her vehicle as she pulled into Route 136 from a side street.
With Friday's fatality, there have been six deaths on Harford County roadways in 2013.
