LOS ANGELES (AP) — A driver whose car rolled over several times on a Los Angeles freeway was thrown so far that his body landed on a road sign at least 20 feet above the ground.

California Highway Patrol Officer Chad Guin says the crash occurred on Interstate 5 north of downtown at about 7 a.m.

CHP officers got a ladder and climbed to the body, covered it and waited for a coroner’s representative. The victim was described as a 20-year-old male.

The wreckage of the car came to rest under the sign. No one else was in the car and no other cars were involved in the crash.
