LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS 11)-- A single-vehicle crash leaves one man dead and Metro Police searching for another person.

The coroner identified Daron Mills, 35, as the man killed in the early morning crash.

There are still some unanswered questions as police continue to investigate this crash but we do know speed was a factor.

Police also say they believe there were two people in the car when it hit a utility pole and one of those people died but the other left the scene.

Police say the driver of the Toyota Avalon was driving north on 7th Street Road and crashed into a pole around 4:30 a.m.Tuesday

When officers got the accident they say Mills was found on the street and likely ejected from the car.

Mills was taken to University Hospital where he died.

LMPD's Traffic Unit is investigating and working to figure out if the victim was the driver or the passenger and to find that second person.
