    A young man died Monday in a rollover crash along State Route 76 between the Pauma and Pala casinos, California Highway Patrol officers said.

    There were three people in the Toyota Corolla that crashed into a ravine just after midnight.

    The man who died was ejected from a passenger seat, according to CHP officials.

    His body was found in the middle of the road, officers said.

    He has been identified only as a 22-year-old man.

    The driver and another passenger were taken to Palomar Hospital with moderate injuries.

    SR-76 was closed for approximately an hour.

    Officers say alcohol and speed may have played a role in the crash.
