Wet roads might have contributed to a deadly crash on Chicago's South Side.

One person was killed early Monday when a pickup truck slammed into a pole around 3:30 a.m. in the 400-block of East Pershing Road.

The force of the impact knocked down the pole and split the truck in two.

The victim's name has not yet been released.
