FRIENDSVILLE, Md. (AP) - Maryland State Police say a man was killed when his vintage car rolled down an embankment in Garrett County.
 
The agency said in a news release that about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, 72-year-old Theodore Roosevelt Dice of Friendsville drove his 1929 Ford Coupe from a gravel driveway onto Bear Creek Road.
 
Troopers say the rear wheels of the Ford lost traction with the road, causing the vehicle to rotate and roll down an embankment.
 
Police say the vintage car had neither a roof nor seatbelts, and Dice was ejected from the car. He was flown to a hospital in Cumberland, where he died.
