A 28-year-old Adrian man died when his car crashed into a utility pole at about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday on East Brady Road in East Franklin.

Larry Montgomery died of injuries suffered in the crash, which occurred on a curve north of Pine Street. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Armstrong County Coroner Brian Myers.

Myers said state police told him that Montgomery's car sideswiped a tow truck and caused him to lose control of the vehicle and veer off the road.

State police said Montgomery's car slid before impact and was traveling “at a high rate of speed.”

“Speed played a factor in this incident,” Myers said.

Montgomery's 2005 Hyundai Sonata was nearly cut in half.

Myers said Montgomery was not wearing a seat belt. An autopsy will not be performed.

The tow truck driver, Robert Rumbaugh, 50, of Chicora, Butler County, was not injured, according to police.

Firefighters from East Frankin, Applewold, Washington and Kittanning diverted traffic from the road, which was closed for at least a half-mile south of the accident while police investigated.
