Authorities believe speed to be the cause of a fatal accident in Mint Hill Friday night.

Police were dispatched to Lawyers Road and Truelight Church Road in reference to a hit and run causing property damage.

Once authorities arrived on the scene of the crash they found a 25-year-old Concord man dead after he had crashed his 2001 Chevrolet Truck.

The man had crashed into a mailbox and overturned his truck before finally coming to a rest on all four wheels.

It is still unknown whether alcohol was a factor in the crash.
