A crash near Ceresville that left a man hospitalized with life-threatening injuries early Friday remains under investigation by Maryland State Police, according to an agency press release.

Troopers responded to the crash at 3:02 a.m. on Md. 26 east of Md. 194 where they found a 2010 Toyota Corolla that had left the road and struck a utility pole, the release states. State police investigators were still trying to determine what caused the car to leave the road, but the driver, who was not being identified as of Friday, was rushed to Meritus Medical Center near Hagerstown with life-threatening injuries.

Police believe the man was driving west on Md. 26 when the car left the road. The road remained closed for an extended period of time between Md. 194 and Crum Road to allow police to investigate and for repairs to be made to the utility pole, according to the release, which was issued just before 5 a.m.

A sergeant taking phone calls at the state police barrack in Frederick could not provide further information, including the injured man's identity or status, as of 4 p.m. Friday.
