A Frederick man was killed in an early morning car accident Sunday.
The Frederick Police Department says 59-year-old James Baker, Jr. died after losing control of his car and striking a light pole along Schifferstadt Boulevard.
Police add that it was raining heavily at the time of the crash, which happened shortly after 8 A.M.
Baker sustained major head injuries and was transferred to Frederick Memorial Hospital.
Officials say following a computed tomography (CT) scan, plans were made to fly Baker to a shock trauma center but he was pronounced dead before the transfer.
Police continue to investigate to find out exactly what happened.
