Comments Off

A Dayton man lost his life in a car accident today when the vehicle he was driving went left of the center line and struck a Dayton power and light pole.

The accident occurred on Gettysburg Avenue between Cornell and James H. McGee in Dayton, just after 4:15 p.m. on Tuesday, according to police.

The man, 37, of Dayton, was driving his older model maroon vehicle with his 13-year-old son when he began veering to the left side of the road and then struck the pole so hard it fell into the street, police said.

He was transported to the hospital, but pronounced dead an hour after arrival due to the serious injuries he suffered in the crash, police said.
