Police said the driver was not wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident.

According to Dakota News Now, authorities are still in the process of investigating the cause of the accident, but speed definitely appears to be a factor. It is still not known at this time if alcohol or drugs were also involved in the crash.

Police were forced to close a stretch of 57th Street on Saturday morning as their team of investigators did their job.

The victim's identity has not been revealed at this time.

Authorities plan to release more information in the coming day as it becomes available.
