A man was killed in a rollover crash that left a home red-tagged in Paramount early Tuesday morning.

The single-vehicle crash occurred about 1:10 a.m. in the 16600 block of Downey Avenue, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

Arriving deputies found the vehicle overturned in the front yard of the home it struck.

Investigators believe the car was headed southbound on Downey Avenue when the driver lost control and hit the house.

Emergency personnel arrived and extricated the trapped driver from the vehicle.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene, the spokesperson said. He was identified only as a man between 25 and 30 years old.

Residents inside the home at the time of the crash were not injured but will need to find another place to stay as the home was red-tagged due to moderate damaged sustained in the incident.

Speed appears to have been a factor in the crash, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

Investigators have not determined if drugs or alcohol were also factors.
