Detroit police say speed likely caused deadly single-car crash on McGraw Avenue
22-year-old man dies after car veers into utility pole
DETROIT – A 22-year-old man died early Tuesday morning after a vehicle he was a passenger in struck a utility pole near McGraw Avenue and Martin Road in Detroit.
Detroit police originally said the 22-year-old woman driving the 2012 Ford Focus lost control of the car about 12:11 a.m. after hitting a pothole while traveling east on McGraw Avenue. The vehicle then veered off the road and into a utility pole.
Police later said the vehicle did not hit a pothole and that speed was a factor.
The man in the passenger seat of the vehicle was rushed to a hospital where he died. The driver was listed in serious condition and is in police custody.
