Investigators say Drennon then cut across the lanes of traffic to the west and entered the center grassy median where his vehicle rolled over multiple times. He was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from his vehicle. His SUV then struck a car that was heading south on K-7 in the left lane.  The debris from the impact struck another vehicle as it was traveling southbound on K-7 in the right lane.
