CHANDLER, AZ (3TV/CBS 5)-- A man has died after police say he was possibly distracted in a Chandler crash Monday morning.

The incident occurred at around 7 a.m. near the area of Alma School and Queen Creek roads.

Police say 50-year-old Michael Robles was driving a dark-colored Dodge pick-up truck when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a wall.

Robles was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Chandler police say they do not believe Robles was wearing a seat belt and may have been distracted by his phone at the time of the crash.

The collision briefly knocked power out to a traffic signal north of Queen Creek Road, but power has since been restored.

The southbound lanes of Alma School Road, north of Queen Creek Road, were closed for a time, but they have since been reopened.
