Although the name of that person is not specified, it is believed to be the passenger. When police arrived at the scene of the crash, they found him about 30 feet from the vehicle. He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was declared to be in critical condition. His current status is not known.The driver was also taken by ambulance to the hospital, but his injuries seem to be less severe.

Specifically, he is charged with DUI, careless driving and vehicular assault driving under the influence.Source: Journal-Advocate, “UPDATE: Two ejected from vehicle in rollover accident,” David Martinez, Sept. 19, 2012
