PHOENIX — Phoenix police are investigating a deadly crash in north Phoenix.

Authorities say 57-year-old Frank De Somma was driving a Jeep on Carefree Highway near Interstate 17 on Thursday evening when he went off the road and crashed.

A witness indicated that a red or orange car may have turned in front of the Jeep, causing De Somma to swerve and lose control.

When the Jeep went off the road, it rolled over causing serious injuries to De Somma. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to police.

The driver of the car who might have swerved in front of the Jeep did not stay at the scene and police have not made contact with the driver.

The investigation remains ongoing.
