FALL RIVER — A Fall River man died last night after a single-car crash in which the car flew off a steep part of President Avenue, then hit a car and a tree on High Street.

According to the Bristol County District Attorney's Office, the driver, a 31-year-old Fall River resident, will not be identified until his next of kin is notified.

A spokesperson from the D.A.'s Office noted in a statement that the man was traveling west on President Avenue in a Nissan Pathfinder on June 20 when his vehicle apparently went "airborne at a steep section of the street."
