A 27-year-old Frederick, Md., man was killed Saturday when the van he had bought a day earlier crashed on Interstate 70, Maryland State Police said.
A Hagerstown woman who was riding in the van was injured in the accident.
Shane Palmer O'Neill of 7403 Hillside Drive was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
O'Neill had just passed tests to become a journeyman in the air-conditioning field, said his father, John O'Neill, of the same address. He bought the 2002 green Volkswagen Eurovan on Friday.
"His life had really just begun," John O'Neill said.
Passenger Nicole Lynn Hourahan, 23, of 13812 Pennsylvania Ave., Hagerstown, was flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. She was treated and released, a hospital spokesman said.
