State Police today were investigating the traffic death of a 65-year-old Cecil County man whose car crashed into a tree.
Layton Thompson Boulden Jr., of the 500 block of Delaware Ave. in Elkton, was driving a 1974 Chevrolet Caprice east on Irishtown Road near North East about noon yesterday.
He lost control of the vehicle for no apparent reason and crashed into a tree, police said.
Boulden, the only occupant of the car, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
State Police at Pikesville said Boulden's death brought to 524 the number of people killed on Maryland roadways so far this year, compared with 584 at the same time last year.
