Los Angeles -  Los Angeles police say speed may be a factor in a deadly crash involving Salma Hayek's brother.

Lt. Andrew Neiman tells the Los Angeles Times that 40-year-old Sami Hayek may have been going too fast on a curvy stretch of Sunset Boulevard when he lost control of a high-powered Ford GT Sunday afternoon.

Neiman says the muscle car fishtailed, crossed into oncoming traffic and hit a pickup truck.

The crash broke Hayek's ribs and killed his passenger, photographer and Grammy-winning art director Ian Cuttler Sala.

The pickup driver suffered a broken foot.

Neiman says no drugs or alcohol were involved.

The actress's younger brother is a furniture designer. Efforts to reach him and Salma Hayek were unsuccessful.

According to his website, the 43-year-old Cuttler won a Grammy for his design of the Johnny Cash: The Legend music box set.
