Authorities are still investigating a crash in Rockville early Tuesday morning.

The Stearns County Sheriff's Office responded to a call at 5:27 a.m. of a vehicle in Sauk River. When authorities arrived, they found the SUV flipped over on its roof. The Rockville Fire and Rescue pulled an adult man out of the vehicle, who died at the scene. He was the lone occupant.

The victim has been identified as 40-year-old Catalino De Leon Alvarado of Rockville.

The crash happened at the County Road 139 and Sauk River Road intersection, which was shut down until towing could remove the car from the river. An initial investigation revealed that the man was heading south on County Road 139 at the time of the crash. He attempted to apply the brakes at the intersection, but went through it, clipping the yellow "T" intersection sign and colliding with a tree, which caused his SUV to flip over and land in the river.

Authorities contacted the owner of the car, who had lent the car to the driver the day before the crash. The man's name is being withheld until family can be notified.
