HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – A person is dead following a fatal wreck in north Huntsville. Huntsville Police say another person is in critical condition.

Madison County Deputy Coroner Tyler Berryhill confirmed that 31-year-old Marvin Jackson died in the crash.

Police say the single-vehicle wreck happened before midnight Thursday on Pulaski Pike, just north of Winchester Road.

Investigators say the car was traveling north when Jackson lost control and slammed the car into a utility pole. Police believe high speed could be a factor.

Emergency crews had to free the female passenger, who was rushed to the hospital.
