Rosemead man dies in freeway crash

SOUTH LOS ANGELES — A 75-year-old Rosemead man died early Sunday after crashing his minivan on an offramp of the 110 Freeway, authorities said.
The man’s name was not released Sunday pending notification of his family, coroner’s officials said.
The crash was reported just before 6 a.m. on the Slauson Avenue offramp of the southbound 110 Freeway in South Los Angeles, California Highway Patrol Officer Dane Norem said in a written statement.
CHP officials responded to reports of a crash and found a 1993 Nissan Quest lying on its side in on the Slauson Avenue onramp, the officer said.
The driver, who had been thrown from the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene, he said.
The investigation was ongoing, but it initially appeared that the Nissan was taking the Slauson Avenue offramp from the southbound 110 Freeway when it veered to the left and struck a wall, Norem said.
The minivan rolled over several times before coming to a rest on the onramp, he said.
The cause of the crash remained under investigation.
