The SUV with two adults and three children went airborne and overturned onto a Toyota that was waiting to pull from Piedmont Road. An adult and child were in the Toyota. All involved were properly restrained with the exception of the driver of the Chevrolet. That driver died and there were no other injuries. (Photo by David Rogers)
