Castellanos said Aredele’s white Nissan Sentra apparently drifted off the roadway’s right shoulder. When Aredele tried to get back on the road, he overcorrected and the car went sideways into a utility pole.

Aredele, who was wearing his seatbelt, was pronounced dead at the scene, Castellanos said.
