A Castle Shannon man died early Saturday after driving off the road and hitting a utility pole, according to police.

Tyler Lee Smithyman, 23, was driving northbound in the 1300 block of Washington Road in Mt. Lebanon at around 3:39 a.m. when he wrecked, according to police.

Police said he failed to negotiate a curve and went off the road and hit a utility pole and tree before overturning. Smithyman was wearing a seatbelt. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 350 a.m.

An autopsy and toxicology tests are pending to determine if drugs or alcohol contributed to the accident, police said.
