Paradise man killed in crash south of Chico

A Paradise man was killed in a crash south of Chico late Thursday.

It happened around 9:15 p.m. on Neal Road, about four miles east of Highway 99. The CHP said a Honda Accord was driving eastbound on Neal Road at a high speed when it drifted across the road and hit a tree.

The driver, only identified as a man from Paradise, was killed. Investigators said he was not wearing a seat belt.

They're not sure if alcohol was a factor, but it's still being investigated.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the CHP at (530) 879-1999.
