A man died after crashing his car into a pole in Milton, Massachusetts, early Wednesday morning, police said.
The man, a 39-year-old who hasn't been identified, was ejected from the car, which had been traveling down Blue Hill Road about 3:30 a.m. Speed appeared to be a factor in the crash, according to Milton police.
Some power lines and two utility poles were downed by the crash, leading to limited power outages in the area, police said. Video from the scene showed a pole had been knocked down and the car significantly damaged.
No one else was in the vehicle and no other cars were involved in the crash, authorities said.
