Phenix City coroner Arthur Sumbry has released the name of the man who died in a one-car accident on River Chase Drive Sunday night.
Daniel Lee Blackwell, 23, of Columbus was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident at 11:55 p.m.
According to police, Blackwell was driving an SUV south on River Chase Drive when he lost control. The SUV collided with a concrete support beneath J.R. Allen Parkway, killing Blackwell. No one else was injured.
