One person is dead after slamming a vehicle into a tree early this morning. It happened around 4am. Investigators say a man, said to be in his 20s, was driving in an Infiniti at a high rate of speed northbound on N. Eldridge Parkway near San Bridge when he lost control, went into the median and slammed into an oak tree.

The car split in half, and the driver was ejected. He died at the scene.
