Auburn Police are investigating a single-vehicle crash at Academy Drive and Auburn Way South (State Route 164) that killed the driver last Friday morning.
The wreck occurred at approximately 4:50 a.m., police said, claiming the life of the single occupant in the vehicle.
The King County Medical Examiner has identified the driver as 25-year-old Gerald S. Moses of Auburn, and the cause of death as multiple blunt force injuries.
Preliminary investigation shows the vehicle left the roadway at a high rate of speed, striking a signal pole, police said.
The roadway, which was closed for several hours with a detour in place, reopened around 9 that morning.
What caused Moses to leave the road may not be known for some time.
Auburn Police Commander Mark Caillier said that as of Tuesday afternoon, the KCME had not yet returned to the APD the results of its toxicology screening, and the APD’s traffic Unit had not yet completed its full investigation.
