PHOENIX — A man died after the vehicle he was driving crashed into a pole in Phoenix late Thursday, authorities said.
Officers responded to a single-vehicle collision near 27th Avenue and Palm Lane, north of McDowell Road, around 11:40 p.m., the Phoenix Police Department said.
The driver, an adult male whose name was not released, suffered serious injuries and died after being taken to a hospital.
The vehicle apparently was heading north on 27th Avenue when it veered across the southbound lanes and into a pole on the side of the road, police said.
“There is no indication that another vehicle was involved in this collision,” Sgt. Robert Scherer said in a press release Friday. “All other details about what led up to the collision will be determined through the accident reconstruction process.”
