A 19-year-old Adamstown man died in a single-car collision early today.

Matthew Lloyd Shook was speeding on U.S. 340/15, west of Mount Zion Road about 2:55 a.m. in a 1993 Honda Civic when the car went into the median and rolled multiple times, according to Maryland State Police.

Shook, the only person in the car, was flown by state police helicopter to a shock trauma unit, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Police believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

U.S. 340/15 East was closed for about an hour after the crash, police said.
