A Fort Bragg man died early Monday morning after crashing his 1983 Datsun on Highway 1 near Mendocino, according to a report by the Ukiah CHP.

Jubal Hugh Stedman, 36, was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

The investigation is ongoing, but according to preliminary reports it appears he was driving northbound on Highway 1 when his vehicle drifted off the roadway, striking several trees and overturning.

Stedman was thrown out of the vehicle and trapped beneath it when it came to rest on its roof.

The crash, reported at about 2:30 a.m., took place north of Little Lake Street on Highway 1.
