When crews arrived at the scene of the single-vehicle crash, they attempted life-saving measures on the driver but were unsuccessful.

The road was closed for several hours because a utility pole was broken.

As of 4 PM, power crews were still on scene, and the road was still closed, as they tried to secure the area and make it safe, once again, for travel. Traffic attempting to get through that area of Old Town was backed up for blocks.
