CHP officials say the fatal collision, which involved a single vehicle, happened around 10:45 p.m. at westbound SR-94 and 28th Street.

A sports sedan occupied by a suspected DUI driver and a passenger was traveling at an unsafe rate of speed when officials say the driver struck a curbside, followed by two trees on the right shoulder of road.

The vehicle then came to rest on the freeway.
