The Garrett County Sheriff's Office has identified the driver of a pickup who died when his pickup hit the concrete wall of Backbone Mountain on Route 135 near Bloomington Sunday evening.

44 year old Thomas Lloyd Umstot, of Ridgeley, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 6:30 PM incident.  He was the lone occupant of the vehicle, and the investigation continues.

The fatality is the first at that location since 2011, but one of over two dozen fatal accidents there in the last 55 years.
