A passenger in a vehicle died Sunday after being thrown out of a car that overturned in the High Desert.

The victim, whose name was not released because relatives hadn't been notified, died at the scene on the 15 Freeway, about two miles north of Nipton Road in Mountain Pass, San Bernardino County coroner's officials said.

The driver veered off the northbound 15 at 10:54 a.m., causing the vehicle to roll over.
