COLUMBIA — A Columbia man was killed in a single-car crash late Friday night.

According to a Boone County Sheriff's Office news release, 34-year-old Christopher Elijah Robinson was driving south in the 3600 block of Creasy Springs Road around 10:20 p.m. His 1999 Chevrolet Suburban veered off a curve in the road and crashed into a tree.

Other drivers and people who lived nearby reported the accident and attempted CPR before authorities arrived. Robinson was taken to University Hospital, where he died at 10:53 p.m.

Deputy Brian Leer said the severity of the crash and damage to the vehicle indicated that speed might have been a factor. The speed limit at the scene of the crash is 35 mph, Leer said.

There were no passengers in the vehicle.
