VENTURA - A single-vehicle crash in Ventura Thursday morning left a man dead after he apparently lost control of the vehicle and collided with a tree, authorities said.

The driver, whose identity and age were not immediately available, was found dead when officers arrived, according to the Ventura Police Department.
The man was driving northbound on east Harbor Boulevard at what police described as a high speed, lost control of the vehicle and collided with a tree, said Cmdr. Ryan Weeks.
