It happened just before noon on Monday, Sept. 11, along Brookstone Road, according to a Tuesday news release from the Painesville Police Department.
Investigators determined the 20-year-old man was driving a sedan “at a high rate of speed” before losing control at a curve.
The car went off the south side of the road, sheared a telephone pole and rolled into a wooded area and ravine.
The man died of his injuries at the scene, according to the release. He was wearing a seatbelt.
Authorities currently aren’t releasing the man’s name.
Crash reconstruction experts assisted on-scene. The investigation is ongoing.
