GOSHEN - Police said aggressive driving, and specifically speed, were factors in a one-car crash in Goshen Sunday morning that killed one man and injured another.

According to a report from the Goshen Police Department, Tyler Coburn, 21, of Goshen, was driving southeast on South Wheatland Drive Sunday morning. At 3:36 a.m., the vehicle went off the east side of the road, hitting a mailbox before running into a tree in front of 406 South Wheatland Drive.

Coburn was trapped in the vehicle and died at the scene.

A passenger, Tanner Pederson, 21, of Goshen, suffered leg injuries considered to be non-life-threatening and was taken to IU Health Goshen Hospital for treatment.
