ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - Authorities have identified a Rockville man who died when the sport utility vehicle he was driving crashed and ended up on flipped over in the Sauk River.

The Stearns County Sheriff's Office says 40-year-old Catalino Alvarado's SUV went through a rural intersection, struck a sign and a tree and ended up in the river early Tuesday.

A passer-by reported the crash about 5:30 a.m. Tuesday. Rescue crews extricated Alvarado from the SUV but life-saving efforts at the scene failed.

Alvarado also was known as Jose Vasquez.
