Maryland High School Student, 17, Killed in Crash

A teenager has died after police say he lost control of the car he was driving and struck a tree in Clinton, Maryland.

Norman White, 17, was driving home from his job at a pizza parlor on Temple Hill Road Tuesday night when he slammed into a tree near Salima Street about 10:15 p.m., Prince George's County police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police are trying to learn how White lost control. 

He was a sophomore at Gwynn Park High School in Brandywine.

"He was a good kid. No fights in school. No drugs. No gangs. Nothing negative. He just got baptized in church," Norman's father Phillip White said.

"Right before he left work, maybe 9:15, I text and said, 'the roads are wet please be safe,'" Norman's mother Yolanda White said.

Police are asking anyone with information to call 301-731-4422.
