The Vancouver man who died in an Oregon crash early Wednesday has been identified by police as 36-year-old Edgar Rangle Rivera.

Investigators have not said what caused the fatal crash, reported at 2:10 a.m. on Interstate 5 just south of Roseburg, Ore.

Rivera was a passenger in a northbound 2000 Mercedes sport-utility vehicle that drifted to the shoulder, according to Oregon State Police.

The driver lost control and the vehicle rolled several times, police said.

Rivera, whom police said was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the vehicle was identified as Veronica Guillem Perez, 34, of Vancouver. She and two juvenile passengers, also from Vancouver, were taken to a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.

Police did not release any more information on the crash.
