Our condolences

We send our condolences to the family, friends and co-workers of Marriott executive Douglas Ely, who died yesterday in a freak auto accident in Maryland.

According to Associated Press, a truck carrying a load of lumber overturned on the Capital Beltway in Bethesda, sending part of the load careening off the overpass to another road below, where it struck and killed Ely in his car. Three other motorists were hurt.

Ely, 47, was a vice president and assistant general counsel at Marriott International, where he worked for 10 years.
