Jason Hucks, 24, of Conway, was killed about 6:15 a.m. Tuesday when the sport utility vehicle he was driving hit a pole just off Mr. Joe White Avenue, officials said.

Hucks, who was traveling east, lost control of the vehicle near the intersection with Jackson Street, causing the vehicle to clip the curb, hit a pole and flip, Lt. Chuck Dunn said. The impact of the vehicle knocked the pole 93 feet.

Hucks died of multiple trauma injuries, Deputy Coroner Tamara Willard said.
