Around 11am-12noon, there was a rollover on the southbound side. Cause of accident unknown but marks on the road suggest the dark SUV was bumped from behind as he entered the short truck lane. Losing control and eventually rolled multiple times, coming to rest on the roof facing east. Traffic was blocked in both directions causing backups. I came upon the scene going northbound, from the passenger side damage, it did not look very bad. Once I got beyond the front of the SUV and saw the driver side roof crushed down beyond the dash and I can not be certain but I either saw a glove laying on the ground where the driver mirror once was, or it was the driver's limp hand sticking out from a small hole. Crews were just standing around as if waiting which is never a good sign. If what I saw was not a glove, then the driver did not survive and the body was trapped, possibly crushed. Like I said, I am not sure but just the feeling at the scene seemed sad, quiet, somber as I drove by and looked at everyone at the scene. I am hoping all I saw was just a glove.

I also passed this crash and could not imagine a good outcome as the cab was completely crushed. Hoping for the best for anyone involved.
