Young man killed in one-car crash in Lakewood

A 19-year-old man was killed early today when his car left the roadway in Lakewood and crashed into a tree.

Paramedics tried to revive Isaiah Davis but the Lakewood resident was pronounced dead at the scene, Lakewood police Lt. Dave Guttu said.

The crash occurred shortly before 1:35 a.m. Davis was traveling eastbound on Custer Road West, approaching Bridgeport Way West. His white car left the roadway in the 7800 block and hit a tree, Guttu said. Davis was the only one in the car.

Speed appeared to be a factor, he added. There were no obvious signs of alcohol or drugs at the scene.

The investigation by the Lakewood Police Department's traffic unit blocked the roadway for a couple of hours. The roadway has since reopened.
