A 37-year-old motorist was killed early Saturday when he lost control of a car, which crossed a four-lane road and parking lot before slamming through a back wall of a restaurant, police said.

James Martin Trainum of the 300 block of Juneberry Way was pronounced dead on arrival at North Arundel Hospital. Police said he suffered head injuries.
