A man is dead following a car crash Wednesday night.

The Charles County Sheriff’s Office reported that at 9:45 p.m. April 17, a man was traveling on Smallwood Church Road in Indian Head when he left the roadway in his pickup truck and struck a tree. He was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead on the scene, police reported.

Diane Richardson, spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office, said the man’s name will not be released until next-of-kin is notified.

Wednesday night’s crash is the fifth traffic fatality in the county this year.

Based on information provided by the sheriff’s office and the Maryland State Police, a woman died as a result of injuries sustained in a crash on Billingsley Road in Waldorf in February, a young girl died from head trauma in an accident on Route 257 in Cobb Island in March and two people died in a crash on U.S. 301 in Bel Alton earlier this month.
