chpAn Oceano man was killed early Tuesday after his vehicle ran into a tree in rural Arroyo Grande, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Shortly before 4 a.m., the man was driving south on Los Berros Road just south of Quailwood Lane at a high rate of speed when he failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway. His 2015 Nissan crossed the double-yellow line and then drove of the road into a tree.
