The Arlington Police Department is investigating an early morning accident that killed an SUV driver.

Spokeswoman Tiara Richard said an SUV was headed north on Fielder Road and entered the intersection of Park Row Dr., where a car headed southbound was turning left across the northbound lanes.

The SUV hit the car and careened into a third vehicle before taking out a light pole in the intersection's northeast corner.

The driver of the SUV died at the scene while the other two drivers suffered minor injuries, Richard said. No one has been identified. Park Row Drive and Fielder will be closed while city workers replace the damaged traffic light.

Richard said they must remove downed power lines and repair the light box, a process that may take up to seven hours.
