WALNUT – A Walnut man was killed around 1 a.m. Saturday after he lost control of his vehicle on the Wyanet Walnut Blacktop and hit a utility pole.

Gary Carl, 41, of Walnut, was a mile north of 1745 N. Ave. in rural Wyanet when he failed to negotiate a T intersection, lost control and hit the pole, landing in a ditch, Bureau County Sheriff’s Deputy Chris Spiegel said Sunday.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, Spiegel said.

He did not know if Carl was wearing a seat belt or if speed or alcohol were factors, Spiegel said.
