An 81-year-old man died in a one-car crash Saturday morning in Huntington Beach, police announced Tuesday.

Huntington Beach police and Huntington Beach and Fountain Valley firefighters responded about 11:53 a.m. Saturday to the accident on Patterson Lane north of Ellis Avenue.

A gray 2001 Suzuki Esteem had been traveling north on Patterson when it left the roadway and hit some bushes, according to a police department release.
