Gaithersburg man killed in car crash
A Gaithersburg man was killed early Sunday when the pickup truck he was driving veered off Route 108 and struck a tree.
Montgomery County police said an off-duty officer contacted police after noticing the pickup, driven by Antonio Ayala, 49, driving erratically about 1 a.m. Another officer arrived at Route 108 and Hawkins Creamery Road to try to stop the truck, but the vehicle left the eastbound lane of Route 108 and struck a tree. Ayala died at the scene.
Family members told police that Ayala was diabetic and used insulin. He was last seen about 6 p.m. Saturday when he left his house to get groceries, they said. Police are continuing their investigation. Anyone with any information is asked to call 240-773-6620.
