A man was killed along Highway 101 Saturday night after his car crashed into a group of trees along the side of the road.

Oregon State Police said around 8 p.m., 63-year-old Paul Kipp of Portland had been driving south along Hwy 101 just north of Cannon Beach when he failed to negotiate a curve near milepost 27.

Officers said Kipp’s car went off the road and crashed into a group of trees.

Kipp was the only occupant inside the car and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to OSP.

Police believe that speed was a factor in this crash. The investigation is ongoing.  

One lane of the highway was closed for about three hours.
