Oregon Man Killed In Crash On I-5

A 66-year-old man from Oregon died in a crash on Interstate Five at Lake Shasta Lake Wednesday night. The unidentified man was driving a 1997 Lincoln southbound at around 8:40PM just north of Turntable Bay. The CHP says he was going about 70 miles an hour on a downhill curve posted at 50 miles an hour when he started to fishtail. He lost control of the car and it slid off the roadway, across the shoulder and sideswiped a tree. The Lincoln then rammed another tree, bounced off, and then rolled about 100 feet down the bank before being caught in thick brush. The man from Arch Cape, Oregon was pronounced dead at the scene, even though he was wearing his seatbelt and the airbags deployed.
