    One person was killed in Oceanside overnight after a car slammed into a tree, officials confirmed.

    The Oceanside Police Department said the fatal rollover crash happened around 12:15 a.m. on College Boulevard, between Old Grove and Avenida de la Plata.

    When officers arrived on scene, they found the driver dead.

    Investigators said the vehicle – a 2013 Toyota – was traveling southbound at a high rate of speed when it crossed into the northbound lanes, veered off the roadway and struck a tree, ejecting the driver.

    The driver has not yet been identified. The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s office will release those details later, after the victim's family is notified.

    No other vehicles were involved in the fatal accident, and no one else was injured.

    Traffic on College Boulevard was shut down in both directions for hours while police collected evidence and cleared the crash.
