Police in Scottsdale say a suspect has been arrested and is facing manslaughter and endangerment charges after an apparent street-racing crash left one driver dead. 

They say two sports cars were speeding on Scottsdale Road on Saturday night before one of the vehicles crashed into a structural support pillar at a hotel entrance. 

Court records show the two cars were going at an estimated 120 mph in a 45-mph speed limit zone. 

Police say 21-year-old Nicholas Meath was declared dead at the scene. They say the driver of the other sports car, 27-year-old Cameron Groom, was taken into custody. It was unclear Monday if Groom has a lawyer yet.
