Previously:

A 35-year-old Redding man was killed early this morning when he lost control of his SUV and hit a tree off South G Street.

The man, whose name is being withheld until officials can notify his family of his death, is suspected of having been under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the 3:35 a.m. crash.

According to CHP, he was driving a 2014 Dodge Journey south on U.S. Highway 101 when he exited at South G Street at an “undetermined speed” and failed to negotiate a curve at the end of the off ramp. The SUV left the roadway in a straight line, according to CHP, and collided with a tree.

The driver was unresponsive when CHP and paramedics arrived on scene and was pronounced dead at Mad River Hospital a short time later. His passenger suffered minor injuries.

This is the 16th roadway death in Humboldt County so far this year.
