A Mulino man died in a crash on Highway 213 that ended with his SUV in a lumber yard.

Emergency crews responded to Milepost 14 near Molalla at 3:36 a.m. Tuesday.

Investigators said Donovan Gardiner, 48, was driving a 1997 Ford Explorer north on Highway 213 when he left the road, struck an embankment, traveled through a chain link fence, struck a power pole and the vehicle came to a stop on the driver’s side door in a lumber yard.

Gardiner was pronounced dead at the scene.
