A Long Beach man died early Monday morning after the SUV he was driving left the roadway on Interstate 5 and rolled over.

According to a news release from the California Highway Patrol, Troy Edward Turner, 47 was driving a 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe southbound on I-5, just south of the Lerdo Highway exit, when for an unknown reason he allowed his vehicle to veer into the dirt median.

Turner overcorrected to the right and lost control of his vehicle. However, Turner was not wearing a seat belt, and he was ejected from the SUV, the CHP said.

Turner was pronounced dead at the scene. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the accident.
