Mobile Police say a 40 year-old man died when his pickup truck left the interstate and struck a light pole.
Ashley Rains of the Public Information Office of the Mobile Police Department, said the accident happened after three a.m. Sunday.
“Mobile police responded to the I-10 and I-65 interchange for a report of a single vehicle crash,” said Rains in a press release to Fox10News. “On scene, police discovered a pickup truck was in the interchange from westbound I-10 to northbound I-65 when the vehicle lost control, left the roadway and struck a light pole.”
Investigators have not released the name of the deceased. He was the only one in the pickup truck.
Police say it’s unknown if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash. They did say speed combined with weather conditions were contributing factors.
Rains said the driver was not wearing a seat belt. Police will continue their investigation into the exact cause of the accident.
