PHOENIX (FOX 10) - Phoenix Police say a man has died from his injuries after crashing into a power pole on the Light Rail tracks Saturday night.
Police say Adan Martinez Cruz, 28, was driving a Mitsubishi 3000 GT eastbound on Jefferson Street. Witnesses reported seeing Cruz stopped at 24th street talking with another driver about racing.
The two cars accelerated at a high rate of speed when the light turned green, according to police. The Mitsubishi lost control and began to spin, striking the curb of the Light Rail track and then a power pole, causing the vehicle to break in half. The other vehicle left the scene.
Cruz was taken to the hospital where he later died from his injuries.
Investigators believe the second vehicle is possibly a black Infinity driven by a Hispanic male in his 20s.
The investigation continues as police work to identify the second vehicle and driver involved. If you have any information please call Phoenix Police or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
