AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a car hit a pole and a sign, then crashed into the garage of an Ohio home and caught fire, killing the driver.
The Akron police department said the westbound car went out of control and struck a utility pole and a stop sign at 2:20 a.m. Saturday.
The car then plowed into the garage of a home in the neighborhood, coming to rest on top of an unoccupied car inside the garage, and burst into flames with the driver trapped inside.
Police said the 34-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.
A passenger was taken to a hospital.
