MARION COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

Police are looking into a fatal single car crash that took place Wednesday afternoon on Interstate 5 in Marion County.

Investigators say a Ford pickup was headed southbound on Enchanted Way at a high speed.

Officers say the driver attempted pass a slower car but ended up losing control and flew into the median of Enchanted Way and I-5.

There, police say, the truck rolled several times before coming to a stop against a concrete barrier.

The driver of the truck was pronounced dead at the scene, and the passenger was taken to a local hospital.

Police are not sure if either of the two were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident.
