A call to clear vehicle parts on the Capital City Freeway on Monday morning turned up a car just off the roadway with a body inside.
The car, driven by the man in his 20s, apparently went off the side of northbound freeway during the night near Arden Way and hit a tree. Nobody noticed the wreckage all night.
About 7 a.m. Monday, dispatchers got a call about debris in the roadway. When a California Highway Patrol officer went to clear the debris, he noticed a car that had hit a tree.
There were no calls to dispatchers reporting the crash, according to a CHP spokesman.
