A 73-year-old Buena Park man died Saturday when an SUV went off a freeway and rolled down an embankment in Moreno Valley.

The solo-vehicle crash was reported at 12:55 p.m. on the eastbound side of the 60 Freeway west of World Logistics Center Parkway, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

The Riverside County coroner’s office identified the man as Ramon Villanueva.

The California Highway Patrol said the SUV rolled down a dirt embankment at least 100 feet and landed on its roof.

Firefighters had to cut through the wreckage to free Villanueva, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Details about what led to the crash were not immediately available.
