April 17, 2006

An Edgewater man has died after his vehicle crashed and caught fire in Davidsonville, Anne Arundel County police said yesterday.

Steven M. Hilgenberg, 48, was driving his 1999 GMC Safari van in the 1400 block of Governor Bridge Road about 8 p.m. Friday, when he crossed the center line and crashed into mailboxes on the road's shoulder, police said.

The vehicle's tires became stuck in the dirt and the van caught fire as Hilgenberg gunned his engine trying to free the vehicle, police said.

Police are investigating the cause of the crash but said neither alcohol nor drugs was a factor.
