    A 53-year-old Waterford man has died after losing control of his car and crashing into a utility pole on Shewville Road in Ledyard, according to police.

    A 53-year-old man has died after crashing into a utility pole on Shewville Road in Ledyard Monday afternoon, according to police.

    Police said Russell M. Sheppard was driving northbound in the area of Town Farm Road when his car veered across the road and struck a pole on the southbound side.

    Sheppard was taken to Lawrence + Memorial Hospital for treatment, where he died of his injuries, according to police.

    Shewville Road has been closed for several hours while authorities investigate and utility workers make repairs.

    Police initially listed Sheppard's residence as a home on Meadow Drive in Waterford but later sent out a correction indicating that Sheppard's last known address was on Shewville Road, although recently he was not associated with any permanent residence.

    The cause of the accident is under investigation.
