PHOENIX – One man is dead and another is facing a manslaughter charge after an apparent street-racing wreck in Scottsdale over the weekend, authorities said.

Witnesses said two sports cars were speeding southbound on Scottsdale Road before the single-vehicle collision at Hummingbird Lane on Saturday evening, the Scottsdale Police Department said in a press release Monday.

Police said Nicholas Meath, 21, died at the scene after losing control of his car and crashing into an entranceway pillar at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort around 6:15 p.m.

The other driver, 27-year-old Cameron Groom, remained on the scene, police said.

Groom was arrested and charged with one count each of manslaughter and endangerment.

The investigation is ongoing.
