TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Tucson police say a man has died but a child survived after a vehicle crashed into a guardrail.

Police say a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck was traveling south on Golf Links Road near Contractors Way around 7:45 a.m. Sunday when it hit the median several times.

The truck then jumped over a curb and struck the guardrail.

Police say the driver, 25-year-old Ryan Dickey, was thrown from the truck. He died shortly after arriving at a hospital.

A young girl in the vehicle was not injured and was properly restrained in a car seat. Authorities say Dickey was not wearing a seatbelt.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
