A 23-year-old Kent man was killed early Saturday morning when his car struck a boulder on Farmers Mills Road, police said.
Kent police responded to the accident at 1:18 a.m. and Michael Drebycz was pronounced dead at the scene, said Sgt. Carlton Champagne. A call from a nearby resident reporting a loud crash alerted police of the accident, he said.
Drebycz was driving west on Farmers Mills Road to his Kentview Drive home when he lost control of his 1995 Acura on a curve, went off the road and struck a boulder, police said.
He had left a friend's house in Kent and was approximately two-tenths of a mile east of Kentview Drive, Champagne said.
Police are still investigating and have not yet determined the cause of the accident.
"It is too soon to cite individual contributing factors," Champagne said. "All indications do show that the driver was not wearing a seatbelt."
Drebycz graduated from Carmel High School in 1999.
His family declined to comment.
