A 23-year-old man from Maryland died Saturday morning after his car hit a traffic signal pole, according to information released by the Fairfax County Police Department today (March 26).

Police believe Johnny Nony Souvannavong of Upper Marlboro, Md. was driving his Subaru eastbound on Baron Cameron Avenue near Hunter Mill Road when his car’s tire went off into the roadway.

Souvannavong lost control of the car, which crossed over to the eastbound lanes, the center median and westbound lanes. The car then crashed into a traffic signal pole.

The driver was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The crash is still under investigation. Speed may be a factor, according to the police department’s crash reconstruction unit.

    “Souvannavong,” . . . It’s just like you can’t even swing a dead cat.

    Did this accident take place at a particular time of day? I mean Saturday morning can be 10AM. It could be 1AM.

    “when a tire went off into the roadway”

    Poorly written. His tire came off? Someone else’s tire? A tire fell out of the sky?

    • Why do you bother?

      Yep. Should probably have been “went off the roadway.”

      C’mon, RN – at least READ your articles before you post them!

    Wow, we really need some better writers.
    “when a tire went off into the roadway”
    “Saturday Morning”
    Way too many commas, looks like a summary by a high schooler.

      But, no Oxford commas. For shame.
