A 53-year-old Portland man died Monday after he crashed into a guardrail and then a light pole on northbound Interstate 205, Oregon State Police said.

OSP said it doesn’t know why Douglas Cansdale lost control of his 2016 Nissan Altima and drifted off the freeway just north of Interstate 5. But it said speed and a wet roadway were believed to be contributing factors.

Cansdale died at the scene, police said.
