Lewiston man killed in one-vehicle crash early Saturday


A 29-year-old Lewiston man died early Saturday after his 1989 Nissan pickup truck struck a fire hydrant, tree and an unoccupied, parked vehicle near the intersection of Ripon Avenue and 11th Street.

According to Lewiston police, Alexander Brown was traveling west on Ripon Avenue about 12:15 a.m. when his vehicle left the north side of the road.  Brown was partially ejected during the crash.  Investigators say an ambulance took Brown to St. Joseph Regional Medical Center, where he later died.

The Lewiston Police Major Collision Investigation Team was called to the scene to investigate the crash.  Both alcohol and speed are believed to be factors.
