Pengilly, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- One person is dead and another injured following a car crash in Pengilly.

The Itasca County Sheriff's Office responded to reports of an accident just after 2 a.m. on Monday.

When they arrived, they found 25-year-old Charles Meador partially ejected from a vehicle and pinned.

He was pronounced dead on the way to the hospital.

His passenger, 22-year-old Loren Cline, received minor injuries after being ejected from the vehicle but declined further medical treatment.

The accident remains under investigation but police say alcohol, speed and no seatbelt appear to be contributing factors in the crash.
