A Lawrence man died Saturday morning when his truck struck a pole and flipped over on U.S. Highway 24.
According to a Highway Patrol report, Steven Haight, 36, was driving west on the highway about five miles east of Lawrence when he lost control on a turn.
Haight, who was driving a 1992 Dodge truck, then pulled onto the grass shoulder and eventually struck a utility pole around 3 a.m. Saturday, according to the report.
Haight was not wearing a seat belt.
The accident knocked power out in parts of west Lawrence Saturday, according to Lawrence Police, including areas of Kasold Drive near Bob Billings Parkway.
Power had been restored by late Saturday morning.
