One person was killed and another injured in a single-vehicle crash on a busy roadway in Santa Clarita Monday night, authorities said.

One person was pronounced dead at the scene, and the second victim was transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital in unknown condition.

Investigators say speed appears to be a factor. The relationship between the victims is unknown. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Bouquet Canyon Road was temporarily closed between Central Park and Heidi Jo Lane.
