Troopers said Mr. Dunne was driving a 2006 Ford Ranger north on I-275 when he tried to pass a bus and lost control of his SUV, which hit a guardrail.

Upon impact, Mr. Dunne was thrown from the Ford, which came to rest along the ramp leading to 118th Avenue N.

The Ford was hit by a 2008 Mercedes GL450 that was being driven north on the exit ramp. The Mercedes driver was not injured.
