DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - One person is dead after a single-vehicle crash that occurred around 1 a.m. Sunday on eastbound Highway 175 at Lake June Road.

The accident occurred when the pick-up truck sped into a guardrail. A spokeswoman for the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office said the truck split upon impact, landing upright.

The driver was pronounced dead on scene and was traveling alone. A name has yet to be released by the Dallas County Medical Examiner.

It is not known if alcohol and drugs were a factor, but the truck is believed to have been traveling at a high rate of speed.
