    First, you said, "After impact, the SUV began to overturn, ejecting the driver."

    Then, you said, "Troopers said bystanders pulled Crooms from the wreckage..."

    Which is it? Do y'all ever proofread your text?

    At any event, this is a heartbreaking and unnecessary tragedy and my heart and condolences go out to this young man's devastated family and friends. I'm so sorry.
