A Harrison County man is dead after he was ejected from his car on I-79 Sunday morning. 
Deputies said around 8:00 a.m. the man was driving north bound on I-79, near mile marker 89, when his vehicle rolled over several times. Officers said they couldn't find the man when they arrived on scene because he was ejected from the vehicle and thrown into the nearby woods.
Lewis County Sheriff's deputies said speed may have been a factor. The name of the man has not yet been released, but officials said he was between 25 and 30 years old.

My son was going about 75 when he blew by him like he was standing still, he then lost control of the vehicle but recovered it then again lost control and the SUV started rolling end over end ejecting him. my son was very shaken my husband was one of the first people on the scene. Speed was definitely a large factor not sure if alcohol was as well. Just very sad for his family there were 3 car seats on the highway so we knew he had children. So very sorry for your loss we have been trying to find out his name but no luck.
