    One person was taken to the hospital after a rollover in East Hartford.

    A Hartford man died in a serious one-car rollover in East Hartford Wednesday morning.

    Alexander Rowland, 31, of Hartford, was thrown from the car he was driving in the crash and died of his injuries after an ambulance took him to Hartford Hospital.

    Rowland was traveling eastbound on Route 2 in a 2009 Nissan Altima when he lost control of the car at about 4:31 a.m. Wednesday, veered off the right side of the road and hit a wire rope guardrail. The car flipped over multiple times down an embankment and landed just before exit 5C on  at the ramp to Maple Street, state police said.

    He was pronounced dead at the hospital at 5:06 a.m.

    An accident reconstruction team responded and state police notified his family.

    The onramp and the right lane of Route 2 East were closed as crews responded, but the scene has since cleared.

    Rowland wasn't wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, according to state police.

    State police ask anyone with information on the crash to contact Trooper Hudson at the Troop H barracks in Hartford at 860-534-1000.
