NORWALK — A man died early Friday after being thrown from his SUV in a rollover crash on Firestone Boulevard, authorities said.
Rudy Carreon, 38, of Norwalk, died in the crash, Lt. Larry Dietz of the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner said.
He was driving an SUV east in the 12500 block of Firestone Blvd., just north of Rosecrans Avenue, shortly after 1:50 a.m. when he apparently lost control, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Bill Evans said.
The SUV struck a curb and rolled over, ultimately coming to a rest on its roof in the parking lot of the Guesthouse Hotel, Evans said. Carreon was thrown from the vehicle and suffered major head injuries.
A woman who was riding as a passenger in the SUV was treated for minor injuries.
The cause of the crash was under investigation.
