February 04, 1993

A 19-year-old Hickory Ridge man was killed Tuesday night when the car he was driving ran off a road in Clarksville and struck a tree, Howard County police said.

Sean Douglas Awkard of the 6600 block of Cedar Lane, Columbia, died instantly in the single-car accident, police said.

The crash occurred about 9:30 p.m. on state Route 32, north of state Route 108. Police said Mr.

Awkard was driving south when his Honda Accord left a curved section of the road, crossed a shoulder and struck a tree on the driver's side.

Police said excessive speed appeared to be a factor in the accident. The crash is under investigation.

Rescue workers in a fire station about a quarter-mile away heard the crash, said Battalion Chief Donald R. Howell, a spokesman for the Howard County Fire and Rescue Services.
