One person is dead after a vehicle crashed into a tree in the front yard of a Boonville, Indiana home.
48-year-old Richard "Rick" Galloway of Boonville has been identified as the man killed in the crash, which happened just before 7:00 p.m. on Thursday on South Rockport Road.
The sheriff told 44News that a witness heard the car speeding down the road moments before it veered off the pavement. That section of South Rockport Road has signs warning drivers about an upcoming s-curve.
Galloway was driving the vehicle at the time of the crash. He died at the scene.
A minor was also a passenger in the car at the time of the crash. They were taken to the hospital for treatment, but their condition remains unknown at this time.
The crash remains under investigation, but authorities believe speed could have played a factor.
Deputies had the area closed to traffic for nearly two hours while they investigated the crash.
Galloway's autopsy is scheduled for Saturday morning.
