An 18-year-old is dead after hitting a pole in Baltimore early Tuesday morning. 

According to police, Tyequan Gunthrop, 18, was driving a Jeep Liberty southbound on the 3900 block of Sinclair Lane just before 2:00 in the morning. 

Police say Gunthrop lost control, causing the car to flip on its side, and hit a pole. The teenager was not wearing a seatbelt, so he was partially ejected from the car and was pronounced dead on the scene. 

Further investigations show that Gunthrop was driving the Jeep without a valid driver's license.
