A Toyota Camry reportedly went off the road, hit a guardrail and light post, rolled and came to a stop upside-down.

According to a state patrol report, 47-year-old Javier Gerald Archuleta, who was driving the Camry, was killed in the crash.

Archuleta was wearing a seatbelt, the report states. It is currently unknown whether alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Meanwhile, the passenger - 23-year-old Derrick Brown, of Columbia Heights - was taken to Regions Hospital with injuries that were not life threatening as a result of the incident, according to the report.

The ramp was closed down for a few hours while troopers reconstructed the scene. It has since re-opened for the morning rush.
