A 19-year-old Severn man was killed early yesterday when the driver of the car in which he was a passenger lost control of the vehicle and hit an embankment in Hanover.

William Scott of the 1700 block of Circle Road was pinned under the car. He was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

According to the police report, a 16-year-old Severn boy was driving the 1980 Ford Mustang north on Forest Avenue near Simms Lane when he lost control on a curve and ran off the right side of the road.

Police refused to release the name of the driver, who was in critical condition yesterday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

There were two other passengers: Travis W. Martinez, 18, of Colorado was in fair condition at the Trauma Center; and Gary C. Maples, 18, of the 1500 block of Elberta Court in Severn was in critical condition at North Arundel Hospital.
