LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a 28-year-old man died after jumping out of a car traveling about 65 mph on a Southern California freeway.
The California Highway Patrol says 28-year-old Javier Gonzalez was riding in the backseat of a Chevrolet Tahoe driven by his aunt when he opened the door and jumped onto the 10 Freeway near Baldwin Park.
Gonzalez, of Ontario, was taken to a hospital, where he died.
The CHP says the possible use of drugs and alcohol in the incident is being investigated.
