Our crews have been busy all day tracking crashes throughout the north state many being blamed on driving too fast on slick roads.

Check out this sight a 19 year old man from Olivehurst walked away seemingly unharmed after driving his car off the road in Paradise.

The California Highway Patrol says he was driving on Clark Road, near Airport Road, when he lost control while making a turn, overcorrected and flew down the embankment.

The car crashed into several trees before coming to a stop.

The c-h-p says this wreck could have been avoided, if the driver took into account, it had just rained causing slick road conditions.

Officer John Murphy from the Highway Patrol say, “We need to slow down. There are advisory signs for curved roadways and on most occasions, there is an advisory sign for this curve and he was apparently driving a little too fast for his ability to drive and lost control of his car.”

The CHP says one lane of traffic on Clark Road was closed for just over an hour, while a tow truck crew cleared the scene.
