The driver fled the scene and crashed into a tree in the 2200 block of N. Lindsay Street. The driver, a 25-year-old man, attempted to flee on foot but was taken into custody a short time later. He was transported to a local hospital by an ambulance after complaining of pain and was pronounced dead around 10:50 p.m. Based on preliminary information, investigators believe the deceased may have ingested drugs during the incident.
