RICHMOND -- A man killed in a rollover crash on the Richmond Parkway on Sunday morning appears to have been speeding, police said.

Authorities identified the man as 45-year-old William Cameron of Bay Point. Cameron was driving a Mini Cooper just after 5 a.m. when he veered off the 3300 block of the Richmond Parkway near Lakeside Drive, down an embankment and into a marshy ravine, Richmond police Sgt. Nicole Abetkov said.

"Right now, it appears he's the main factor in the crash," Abetkov said. "It appears he was going too fast."

Abetkov said Cameron smashed through the center median and crossed two lanes of opposite traffic before going over the embankment. He was on his way to work at the Chevron building, Abetkov said.

The car rolled more than 100 feet before coming to rest upside down on the edge of a swamp. Cameron was pronounced dead at the scene. No other cars were involved in the wreck.
