A North State man is recovering in the hospital Tuesday morning after a suspected DUI crash in Chico overnight.

A 23-year-old man from Willows suffered significant injuries as a result of the crash.

The CHP got the call just after midnight Tuesday on the 3,000 block of Hegan Lane.

Authorities on scene say the man was driving westbound on Hegan Lane when he drifted off onto the side of the road, overcorrected, then ran into a tree on the opposite side of the road.

Officers say he was awake and talking when he was taken to Enloe Medical Center by ambulance, but they did say he smelled like alcohol.

No one else was hurt in the crash.
