Authorities in Phoenix said a man is dead after his car rammed into a tree along 35th Avenue south of Northern early Friday morning.
Police said they think the 27-year-old driver may have fallen asleep. Impairment does not appear to be a factor.
Both directions of 35th Avenue south of Northern were closed while investigators worked the scene. It was re-opened shortly before 6 a.m.
Police have not released the name at this time.
