A Virginia man died in a crash in Myersville late last week, according to the Frederick County Sheriff's Office.
Martin Flores, 46, of Manassas, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash in the 1100 block of Harp Hill Road, while two others were slightly injured, the sheriff's office said in a press release.
Flores was driving a 1999 Ford F350 pulling a flatbed trailer loaded with construction equipment that was traveling southbound on Harp Hill Road shortly after 6 p.m. Friday, according to a sheriff's office release sent Monday.
Crash reconstruction experts believe the truck may have had equipment problems going down a steep hill, causing it to gain speed and leading Flores and the two passengers to jump from the vehicle, the release said.
Anyone with information about the crash should contact the sheriff's office's traffic unit at 301-600-6490.
