Woodland crash kills one, DUI suspected

A single-car crash killed one of four people Friday after an automobile overturned on a Woodland off-ramp, California Highway Patrol officials reported.

The 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse was on the off-ramp from southbound Interstate 5 to County Road 102 at about 9 p.m. when the driver, a 22-year-old man from Sacramento, lost control.

The vehicle overturned several times and came to rest on its roof.

Though the driver was wearing a seatbelt, his three passengers were not, and all were ejected, the CHP reported.

All three were Woodland men in their 20s.

One was killed and two sustained major injuries, according to the CHP.

The driver, who had only minor injuries, was believed to be intoxicated and was arrested.

None of the vehicle occupants was identified by officials.
