The Butte County Sheriff's Office says dental records have confirmed the identity of a man killed in a crash on Highway 70 near Palermo last Monday.

Authorities said Monday that the man killed in the crash was 22-year-old Marysville resident Zachary Herrington.

The crash happened just after 10 a.m. last Monday, on Highway 70, north of Power House Hill Road.

Witnesses told California Highway Patrol investigators that Herrington was driving erratically, and speeding to pass other vehicles in his 2008 Chevy Cobalt, when he slammed head-on into a semi-truck.
