CLEVELAND - One person is dead after a one car crash on Cedar Glen Parkway near Overlook Road in Cleveland near the border with Cleveland Heights around 3:30 a.m. Monday.

According to Cleveland police, Hopkins was headed eastbound when they crossed all lanes of traffic and hit a utility pole on the north side of the street. Hopkins was ejected from the car. The impact was so severe that one of the car doors was lodged into the utility pole.
