A man was killed in a rollover crash in northeastern Colorado Springs early Thursday morning. 

The crash happened around 2 a.m. on Barnes Road just east of Charlotte Parkway. Police said a 2016 Toyota SUV was headed eastbound when it hit the center median and rolled. 

The driver, 47-year-old Ernest Almazen, died on the scene.

Police said speed was a factor in the crash, and alcohol may have been a factor as well. 

Almazen’s death is the 13th traffic-related death in Colorado Springs this year. At this time last year, there were 11.
