  The California Highway Patrol says speed played a role in a crash that killed an Orland man south of Corning.

   It happened just after 7 p.m. Thursday night on Highway 99W, just south of Olivewood Avenue.

   Officers say 39 year old Chris Wandt was heading north in his Lincoln SUV at a high rate of speed when he lost control, hit a guardrail and rolled over several times before coming to rest upside down in a field.
   
   Wandt was pronounced dead at the scene.
   
   A 8 year old boy was taken to the St. Elizabeth Hospital in Red Bluff with moderate injuries.
   
   Investigators say drugs and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash, however toxicology reports are pending.

We have beautiful weather around northern California right now, but it will get a lot more unsettled this weekend as a storm moves overhead. We can expect gusty wind, a big cooldown, and areas of light to moderate rain.
