A man from Visalia was killed in a crash Thursday night on Highway 46 near Shandon.

It happened at about 7:50 p.m. just west of Highway 41.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the man was speeding eastbound when he turned his vehicle to the right. It went off the roadway, down a dirt shoulder, and overturned several times before eventually landing on its roof.
