Deadly SUV crash in Reading

Police say a driver is dead after a fast-moving sport utility vehicle missed a turn in a southeastern Pennsylvania intersection, knocked down a streetlight and crashed into a utility pole.

Deputy Berks County Coroner Ellis Edmonds pronounced the man dead early Friday at the scene in Reading. He did not immediately identify the victim. Edmonds says it doesn't appear the driver was wearing a seat belt.

Vehicle parts were strewn throughout the intersection as far as 100 feet away following the accident. Reading police say there were no passengers in the vehicle, and no other vehicles were involved.
