MT. AIRY, Md. (AP) - A White House staffer is dead after a bicycle crash in Maryland’s Howard County.

Police say it happened Saturday afternoon on Old Frederick Road near Twin Arch Road in Mt. Airy. Police say a preliminary investigation revealed that 34-year-old Jacob Thomas Brewer of Alexandria, Virginia, was riding his bike westbound Old Frederick Road when he entered a sharp curve and lost control. Police say Brewer crossed into the eastbound lanes of the roadway where the driver of a 2008 Honda Pilot struck him.

Police say Brewer was pronounced dead at the scene. Brewer worked in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy as a senior adviser to the U.S. Chief Technology Officer.
