Dorsey crashed into a utility pole on Veranda Street, just before the Interstate 295 overpass. Witnesses said they saw his car drift into the pole, police Lt. Ted Ross said.

It was unclear whether Dorsey died from injuries he suffered in the crash or from a medical problem that happened just before the crash, such as a heart attack, Ross said.
