A Layton man died Saturday morning after he drove off Highway 89 and crashed into a pole.
Police identified the driver as 75-year-old Charles Black, who was the only person in the car. He was the owner of Black Island Farms, a Syracuse vegetable farm that hosts family-friendly events in the fall such as pumpkin patches, corn mazes and a haunted house around Halloween.
Black was heading north in a Buick sedan at 8:50 a.m. when he drove off the road near 750 North in Layton, said Layton Sgt. Jeff Roderick. The vehicle subsequently hit a pole and caught fire. Roderick said the man died at the scene.
