One person is dead, another has life-threatening injuries after a crash in east El Paso.

A police spokesman said two people were on a motorcycle when it crashed.  A pickup truck was also involved in the crash.  Police weren't able to give details whether the driver of the truck sustained injuries.

The wreck occurred around 2 a.m. on McRae Boulevard near Gateway West.  The crash was close to I-10, but not on the freeway.

Parts from the motorcycle were spread around the intersection, but the truck appeared to be about 50 yards away overturned on it's side.
