A driver was killed early Sunday when his car tumbled down an embankment from the northbound 710 Freeway onto the 60 Freeway in East Los Angeles, the California Highway Patrol said.

The 25-year-old El Monte man, whose identity has not been released, was driving a 1994 Acura approaching the eastbound 60 interchange about 3:05 a.m. when his vehicle veered left for unknown reasons and tumbled end-over-end down an embankment.

The solo driver was ejected onto the roadway, and his car ended up in the center divider of the 60, authorities said.

An investigation is ongoing.
