A motorist died in Vacaville Monday when a Mitsubishi went off the 80 Freeway and slammed into a tree, authorities said.

The crash on the westbound 1-80, at the Mason Street exit ramp, was reported at 8:24 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

Though an airship was called to fly out a trauma patient, it became uneccesary and instead, a Solano County coroner investigator was called to the scene, the CHP reported.

A SigAlert was issued for a shutdown of the far right lane east of Mason Street and traffic quickly became backed up to the 505 Freeway, according to the CHP.

The cause of the crash was under investigation.
