RPD says a Silver car and a Gray SUV were northbound on Alpine when the car rear-ended the SUV.  The driver of the SUV was the one who passed away on scene.  Passenger of the car was transported to the hospital with life threatening injuries, and the driver of the car was transported with non life threatening injuries.  They said speed was a factor in the accident.
