Beacon Journal staff report

An Akron man was killed Tuesday night when he lost control of his SUV and crashed into a tree on the city’s west side.

Michael W. Smith, 32, of Yukon Avenue, died immediately after the crash, which took place about 6 p.m. in the 1400 block of East Avenue.

Police say Smith was driving a 2000 Oldsmobile Bravado south on East Avenue near Russell Avenue when he drove off the road.

There were no skid marks at the scene, police said. Smith was not wearing a seat belt.

Alcohol use does not appear to be a contributing factor in the crash.

Akron police and the Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office are investigating.
