KIRKLAND, Wash. -- A 44-year-old Vancouver man was killed Friday afternoon when his SUV went off the road and hit a pole.

Witnesses say the man was driving northbound on I-405 near NE 70th Street in Kirkland when he suddenly veered off the road and hit a pole on the side of the freeway.

Good Samaritans pulled the man from his burning SUV, but he died at the scene. The King County Medical Examiner will conduct a death investigation.

It's unclear what caused the man to veer off the road.
