A 23-year-old man died after losing control of his vehicle and striking a pole in the Carytown area on Tuesday night, according to Richmond police.

Nicholas Anthony Smith, 23, was southbound in the 100 block of South Arthur Ashe Boulevard at 9:16 p.m. Tuesday, police said.

Witnesses told police that the driver, who was the sole occupant of his vehicle, swerved to avoid striking two pedestrians who were crossing Arthur Ashe Boulevard. Police said Smith lost control of the car, which left the roadway and struck a pole near West Cary Street.

Speed was a factor in the crash, police said.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call investigator W. Kress at (804) 646-0280 or Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000.
