Haskins was towing a Chrysler minivan down Route 17 around 12:48 a.m. when he crashed, but no other drivers were involved. State Police say Haskins appears to have run off the roadway and struck a traffic signal pole, but that neither speed nor alcohol appeared to be factors in the crash.

Haskins was not wearing a seatbelt.
