The Mesa Police Department says one person was killed after a car crashed into a tree Wednesday night.

The incident happened around 8 p.m. near Guadalupe Road and the Loop 202.

Police say there was a minor crash nearby on Guadalupe Road where two vehicles struck each other. After that, one of the vehicles continued east on Guadalupe Road at a high speed and crashed into a tree.

The deceased driver has since been identified as 29-year-old Jefte Daniel Boll. 

Officials say the main factor in the crash was speed. 

No charges are pending against the other driver who was not at fault. That driver suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital.
