An 18-year-old man died Saturday afternoon when the car he was driving went off the road and struck a tree in Evans.

Evans town police were withholding the name of the victim until they could notify family members.

The crash occurred about 12:30 p.m. on Sturgeon Point Road, west of Route 5.

The driver was the only person in the four-door sedan at the time of the crash, which is still being investigated.
