CHARLOTTE — The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is investigating a fatal collision that occurred in west Charlotte Monday evening.

At the scene, police said they found a U-Haul that was heavily damaged in the front as well as on the driver’s side of the vehicle.

The driver of the U-Haul was partially ejected from the vehicle and a passenger was fully ejected onto a grassy area nearby, according to police.
