The man killed in an early morning accident on Brady Street in Davenport has been identified as John Frost, 47, of Davenport.

About 2:23 a.m., Davenport patrol officers discovered a car that had hit a building at 3707 N. Brady St.

Police said a preliminary investigation indicates that the 2008 Pontiac G6 was northbound on Brady at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control and went off the left side of the road and hit guy wires, causing the vehicle to go airborne, stopping at the front of the building.    

Mr. Frost, a passenger in the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police located the driver of the vehicle, according to a news release. His name has not been released. 

"This is an on-going investigation and criminal charges are pending," according to the release.
