Former Chesapeake Energy CEO Aubrey McClendon has died in a car crash.

It took place around 9 a.m. March 2 in Oklahoma and, according to officials, the car was going very fast.
"Speed was definitely a factor in the fatality," Oklahoma City officials said in a press conference. "He pretty much drove straight into the wall."
On Tuesday, McClendon, 56, was indicted on conspiracy to rig bids for oil and natural-gas leases. He and other companies allegedly colluded to figure out who would win the bids.
