A man was killed in a single car accident in Charlotte last week. He drove the car into a utility pole and then a building. Rescue teams had to use the Jaws of Life. The victim died at the scene of the accident.
It happened off of Old Concord Road in northeast Charlotte.
Investigators believe the driver of the car was driving too fast when he hit a sharp curve in the road. That caused the car to run off the road.
The passenger in the car was taken to a local hospital to be treated for her injuries. They were said to be life-threatening. The police are investigating the accident.
