A 21-year-old Montgomery Village man was killed just after midnight Sunday when he drove his car into an oncoming sport utility vehicle in Gaithersburg, police said.

Luis Kenyo Chambergo-Chanco was driving his 2001 Honda Civic south on Snouffer School Road near Centerway Road just before 12:10 a.m. when he crossed into the northbound lanes, according to Montgomery County Police.

The Civic slammed into an oncoming 2009 Nissan Rogue. Chambergo-Chanco died of his injuries. The two people in the SUV, both Gaithersburg residents, were taken local hospitals with what authorities described as injuries that were not life threatening.

Police are still investigating why Chambergo-Chanco crossed into the opposite lane.
