UPDATE: The Spokane County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that next of kin has been notified and identified the victim as 59-year-old Gordon Beloit.
One man was killed in a car crash in Deer Park Saturday morning.
Investigators with the Spokane County Sheriff's Department are still looking into the crash, but say the Beloit was heading north on Stevens street near 6th, when he left the paved road and started driving on the shoulder, and ultimately through people's yards. Eventually Beloit collided with a power pole, then continued until his truck struck a tree at a high rate of speed.
MedStar was called in to transport the victim, but Beloit was pronounced dead at the scene.
The scene will remain blocked off for a few hours while deputies investigate.
