Police have not released the identity of the victim

A 23-year-old man is dead after crashing into a pillar Wednesday night.

According to Arlington police, officers responded to a crash on the 600 block of E. Interstate Highway 30 at 10:45 p.m. yesterday.

When they arrived, they found a truck that struck a concrete pillar in the median on the highway. No other vehicles were involved.

The driver, identified as Ivan Villa of Grandview, Texas, was transported to an area hospital where he later died.

Witnesses were able to tell police that they had seen the car driving at a high rate of speed as it entered the freeway.

Investigators believe that Villa had lost control of his car as he attempted to merge onto the main lanes. The vehicle then drove across the median and hit the pillar.

Alcohol may have been a factor in this crash, according to police.
