CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A 25-year-old man was killed after being thrown from his car during a crash, however, when the crash occurred is still under investigation.

Kyle Lord was the victim of the accident that occurred near 10400 Park Road near Carolinas Medical Center Pineville. WCNC confirmed Lord is a University of South Carolina graduate.

The car he was driving belonged to his mother.

It appears the car clipped a sign when it left the road and then flipped over. CMPD does not know the exact cause of the crash at this time.

"I pulled into my job and there was a body lying right in front of me," said Josephine Iberra, who works in a nearby dentist office.

Iberra got out of the car thinking it was a joke and yelled at the person, 'Are you okay? Are you alright?'

When the person didn't respond she flagged someone down on Park Road to call 911.

Iberra says the man may have been lying there for hours. She described the man as "dead when she pulled up" and "cold to the touch."

It appears that there was only one person in the car, the victim.

As of 7 a.m. Park Road has been shut down between Park Cedar Rd and Willow Ridge Rd for an extended period of time.
