SYRACUSE — Police have identified the Syracuse driver killed Saturday after he crashed into a telephone pole.

Taylor Johnston, 20, was attempting to pass another car on 1700 South when he drove into oncoming traffic, swerved back into his lane, and overcorrected near 3400 West, police said.

Johnston lost control of the Dodge Neon he was driving and hit a telephone pole. He was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said no other vehicles were involved, and speed and weather may have been factors in the accident.
