NORTH LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) – One person is dead and another is injured after a single-vehicle accident this morning near Camino Eldorado and West Tropical Parkway.

The accident occurred just after 4:25 a.m., according to the North Las Vegas Police Department.

The passenger, James Albert Monterio, 23, of North Las Vegas, was killed. The driver, a 22-year-old female, was taken to UMC.

According to a news release, the department's preliminary investigation indicates that the woman was driving a 2002 Honda Civic northbound on Camino Eldorado at a high rate of speed.

For unknown reasons, she lost control of the vehicle and struck a tree severing the vehicle in two.

Both occupants were ejected from the vehicle, suffering life-threatening injuries. Alcohol and speed are believed to be factors in this crash.

It is the fifth traffic-related fatality in the North Las Vegas jurisdiction this year.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
