Investigators said Johnson was northbound on South 28th Street after 12:45 a.m. in a 1997 Toyota Avalon when the vehicle left the roadway. The Toyota hit a stop sign, a fence and then a tree.

Johnson, the lone occupant, had to be cut out of the vehicle.

He was taken to the hospital with CPR in progress.
