A motorist died this morning after hitting a light pole on the Antelope Valley Freeway, officials said. The single-car collision happened at 4:22 a.m. as the driver was exiting the southbound 14 Freeway at Angeles Forest Highway, south of Palmdale, said Officer Anthony Martin of the California Highway Patrol.

Detectives aren’t sure what caused the car to run into the light pole, Martin said. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene, he said.
