    JERICHO - Vermont State Police say a motorist was killed when his van veered off a road, crashed into a metal culvert and slid on its side into a utility pole in the town of Jericho.

    Police say emergency crews had to use extrication equipment to free 17-year-old Elijah Davis of Jericho, who was pronounced dead at the scene early Sunday.

    Police say the van was traveling west on Route 15 in Jericho shortly after midnight when the vehicle left the road while approaching an intersection with Raceway Road. Police say it hit the metal drainage culvert head-on. The impact knocked the van onto its side before it slid roof-first into the utility pole.

    An autopsy is scheduled for today.
