PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — Police say alcohol is believed to be a factor in a car crash that killed a young man in Prince George.

The crash happened around 12:45 a.m. Saturday on Highway 97.

Prince George RCMP say they believe a pick-up truck was speeding south when the driver lost control and the vehicle rolled into a ditch.

The 22-year-old driver was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured, but his four passengers were not and they were ejected from the vehicle.

A 21-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 20-year-old woman was taken to hospital by ambulance, and two 19-year-old women suffered minor injuries.
