A man was killed Sunday night in a three-vehicle crash in the White Oak area of Montgomery County, the police said.

Ovidio Aroldo Gonzalez Cortez, 25, of Silver Spring died about 9 p.m. after his northbound van crossed the median on New Hampshire Avenue, near Lockwood Drive, the police said.

The van struck an auto in the southbound lanes and that auto was then struck by a southbound Metrobus, the police said.

Cortez died at the scene. The bus driver and the driver of the other car were taken to a hospital with minor injuries, according to police.

They said they are still trying to determine why Cortez’s van crossed the median.
