A Dallas man died Friday after a one-vehicle crash on East Main Street in Grand Prairie, police said.

Christopher Garcia, 23, died at Methodist Dallas Medical Center, Sgt. Eric Hansen, a police spokesman, said in a news release.

Garcia was a passenger in a 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser driven by a 19-year-old Dallas woman, who was taken to the hospital and was in serious condition.

Hansen said the car was traveling east in a construction zone about 8:30 p.m. when it crashed into a guardrail and concrete barrier.

Neither occupant was wearing a seat belt, Hansen said.

Police were still investigating the crash. Garcia was the 12th person to die in a traffic accident in Grand Prairie this year.
