STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police are investigating an early-morning crash in Stamford that left one person dead and another seriously injured.

Police said a 2002 Dodge Ram pickup was traveling north on Hope Street at a high speed shortly after 1 a.m. on Saturday when the driver began to lose control. The vehicle crossed into the southbound lane before skidding into a tree.

The driver, identified only as a 20-year-old Stamford resident, was killed in the crash. A 23-year-old male passenger was taken to Stamford Hospital in critical condition.

A passenger in the back seat of truck was treated for less serious injuries at the hospital and released.
