TEMPLE HILLS, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a 19-year-old District of Columbia man died after a utility pole snapped and power lines fell.

The incident early Saturday in Temple Hills was believed to be related to strong thunderstorms Friday night.

Prince George’s County fire officials say Indy Saunders,19, had crush injuries and suffered burns to more than half his body. Authorities couldn’t get to the body until power was shut off but say they believe he died instantly.
