CINCINNATI — Cincinnati Police said 23-year-old Devaughn Bell died in a single-vehicle crash on Harrison Avenue in Westwood Thursday morning.

Bell lost control of his car and struck a utility pole, police said. He was not wearing a seatbelt, according to police, and excessive speed contributed to the cause of the crash.

The crash happened around 3:30 a.m. between Werk Road and Lafeuille Avenue. Power lines fell across the road, forcing crews to shut down power in the area while they cleaned up the crash.

The roadway reopened after 9 a.m. Thursday. Police are asking anyone who may have seen this this crash to contact the department’s traffic unit at 513-352-2514.
