A man was killed in a crash in Kannapolis Tuesday afternoon, according to officials.

The single-vehicle wreck happened around 2:30 p.m. on Lane Street between Evelyn and Laura Avenues. Police said the vehicle was headed west when it left the roadway, crashed into a telephone pole then came to rest in the front yard of a nearby home.

The victim, a 43-year-old man whose name has not been released, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators have not said what may have caused the crash.

A witness said he heard squealing tires, looked up and saw a car out of control before it crashed into the pole.
