A man has died and four others were traumatically injured after a fiery crash in Montgomery County that also damaged a home's carport.

A man driving a Volkswagon Jetta was making a left turn from Frederick Road to Plummer Drive about 1:30 a.m. Sunday when it was struck by a Toyota Scion FR-S, Montgomery County Police say.

The Toyota, carrying four people including two teenagers, careened into the carport of a nearby home, hit another car and caught fire, police say. Officers rescued the four occupants, police say.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze before it spread to the home, which was unoccupied at the time of the crash.

The sole occupant of the other car, a 51-year-old man from Germantown, was killed, police say. He lived near the site of the crash.

The 25-year-old driver of the Toyota and his passengers, two 14-year-old girls and a 20-year-old woman, were taken to the hospital with serious injuries that are not considered life-threatening, police say.

Some roads were closed in the area for a few hours during the investigation.
