GLENDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - A man is dead after the pickup truck he was driving collided with a wall on a major road early Wednesday morning in Glendale.

Glendale police say they responded to the crash just after 12:30 a.m. near 75th Avenue and Villa Rita Drive, which is a few blocks south of Union Hills Drive. When rescue crews arrived, they found a 25-year-old man in the truck who was pronounced dead at the scene. Officials say it looks as though the truck was headed south when it crashed into the wall.

Speed and impairment are still being investigated as potential causes of the crash. The man’s identity has not been released.

Drivers are asked to avoid the area of 75th Avenue between Union Hills Drive and Bell Road. It was completely shut down in both directions for most of the overnight hours, but reopened later Wednesday morning.
