Man dies in Blvd. crash

A 50-year-old man died in a one-car ac­ci­dent on Roosevelt Boulevard in Bustleton early Monday.

The ac­ci­dent happened about 5 a.m. near the in­ter­sec­tion of Tom­lin­son Road, said Of­ficer Christine O’Bri­en, a Phil­adelphia po­lice spokes­wo­man.

The vic­tim was driv­ing a 1994 Lin­coln Con­tin­ent­al south­bound in the out­er lanes when he lost con­trol of the vehicle and struck a tree stump on a me­di­an strip. Para­med­ics pro­nounced him dead at the scene at 5:14 a.m. Po­lice did not de­tail his in­jur­ies. No oth­er in­jur­ies were re­por­ted.

Po­lice with­held the man’s iden­tity pending no­ti­fic­a­tion of a next of kin.
