AUSTELL, Ga. (AP) - Police in suburban Atlanta have identified a man who died after being ejected from his vehicle during a rollover crash.

Cobb County police said in a statement that 51-year-old Tommy Pierson of Lawrenceville was riding in a 1994 Ford Explorer on I-20 when he lost control Saturday night in Austell.

Police say Pierson hit a truck in the next lane and began swerving again before spinning and flipping over. Authorities say Pierson was ejected and the Explorer landed on its roof against a concrete jersey wall. Police say Pierson was pronounced dead at Grady Memorial Hospital.

Authorities say the passengers in the truck weren't injured and the crash is under investigation.
