A 64-year-old man was killed Wednesday when the vehicle he was riding in slammed into a light pole on the east end of Riverside.

The fatality happened about 12:15 a.m. at the intersection of Orange Street and Tyco Drive, according to the Riverside Police Department.

Sgt. Andrew Leyva said a Dodge Grand Caravan was northbound on Orange when the driver, identified only as a 28-year-old man, apparently lost control, crossed southbound lanes and plowed into a light standard on the sidewalk.

Leyva said paramedics reached the location a short time later and pronounced the passenger, whose identity was not immediately released, dead at the scene.

The driver was not hurt, the police spokesman said.

He said the crash triggered a power outage in the neighborhood.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information was asked to contact the police Traffic Bureau at 951-826-8723.
