One man is dead after he lost control of his car and crashed it into a pillar on the city's west side.

Police say the man, identified on Wednesday afternoon as Keith Taylor, 21, was speeding on Loop 410 East around 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

He was changing lanes when he clipped a pickup, lost control and went off the road.

He skimmed one of the overpass pillars at Highway 151, then hit a second one head-on.

The man who was driving the truck is OK, police said.
