GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Police in Grand Forks says a driver is dead after crashing his car into a traffic light pole following a hit-and-run.

Officers were called to the hit-and-run on South Washington Street in Grand Forks late Saturday. Witnesses say the car struck the back end of a pickup while both were traveling north on the street. The pickup pulled over while the car went around the pickup and continued north.

The car drifted into the southbound lane, then drifted back into the northbound lane and collided with the signal pole.

The driver of the car died at the scene. His name has not been released.


Corrects hit-and-run to late Saturday instead of early Sunday.
