GAITHERSBURG, Md. (WDVM) — One person is dead after a crash in Montgomery County early Saturday morning.

First responders say it happened around 4:45 a.m. along Saybrooke Oaks Boulevard near Midcounty Highway in Gaithersburg. Authorities say the single car appears to have crashed and caught on fire.

One passenger was trapped in the car and was found dead when authorities arrived, according to Montgomery County Fire and Rescue officials. Two other adults were in the car, and were transported to a local hospital with serious injuries.

It’s too early in the investigation to say exactly what they believe occurred,” Montgomery County Police Officer Rebecca Innocenti said. “But certainly after a couple weeks they will start to gather more information and have a better idea of what they believe occurred during this collision.”

The driver has been identified as 26-year-old Jorge Castro of Silver Spring who died on scene.
