DECATUR — A 30-year-old man died as the result of a one-vehicle crash at the Jasper Street underpass early Saturday, police said. 

Montrell A. Davis of Decatur was pronounced dead at 3:55 a.m. Saturday at Decatur Memorial Hospital of massive generalized trauma to the torso and head. He was the only occupant of the vehicle.

Jasper Street will be closed from north of Eldorado Street to Sangamon Street, or the 500 to 700 blocks, until at least Monday, police said. 

In a statement, Sgt. Steven Hagemeyer said officers were called to the 600 block of North Jasper Street at 2:54 a.m. Their initial investigation found that a vehicle had been traveling northbound from Eldorado and crossed the center line, striking the bridge support on the south side of the underpass.

Routine toxicology testing and an inquest are pending. The accident is under investigation by the Decatur Police Department's Fatal Team.
