Man killed after he is ejected from SUV, hitting tree, pole
A 34-year-old man died Saturday night after he lost control of his SUV and his body struck a tree and a utility pole in Rylie, police said.
Darrion Pittman was speeding in a Chevy Suburban in the 13000 block of Ravenview Road around 9 p.m. when he began to rotate, hit a mailbox and careened into a ditch, his body flying into the tree and pole, police said.
Pittman was not wearing a seat belt, according to police. Investigators suspect alcohol may have been a factor.
