Police said speed was a factor in a fatal single-vehicle crash overnight in northwest Houston.

According to officials, 41-year-old Adrian Castellano was speeding south in the 2700 block of North Durham near the North Loop around 2am when his Toyota Camry hit a curb.

The car went airborne, crashed through a metal fence, struck a tree and then came to rest in a Houston Independent School District parking lot.

Officials said Castellano was dead by the time emergency responders arrived.

It is unknown if alcohol was involved. An autopsy is pending.
