A 21-year-old Bethesda man died Wednesday morning after his 2013 Scion FR-S struck a tree off of Snowden River Parkway in Columbia, according to Howard County police.
Police said they are investigating the single-car crash, and that speed was likely a factor in the accident. Police said the car was traveling on Snowden River Parkway northbound when it left the road and struck a tree.
The driver, Emmanuel Guillossou, 21, of Bethesda, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
Police responded to the 9300 block of Snowden River Parkway at 7:24 a.m. The road was closed for four hours while police investigated, police said.
