TULSA, Oklahoma -- The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has identified a Tulsa man killed in a single-vehicle rollover crash early Friday morning.

Troopers say the crash happened on 57th West Avenue at West 39th Street South in Berryhill at around 2:30 a.m.

The highway patrol says the driver, 24-year-old Michael Cowen, was southbound on 57th West Avenue when his 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche left the roadway.  The patrol says he overcorrected twice and the truck rolled over, partially ejecting him through the sunroof.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Trooper Darrick Eades says Cowen was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash.
