A Fountain man died Sunday night after a tire on the 1990 Toyota 4-Runner blew, causing the vehicle to roll twice.

According to a Colorado State Patrol media release, Ronald Tweedy, Jr., 32, was driving north on Interstate 25, near milepost 119, south of Colorado Springs just before 8 p.m. when the incident occurred. Tweedy was thrown from the vehicle after he lost control of the Toyota, which ran into the median, spun and rolled before stopping in the southbound lane of I-25. He was flown to Memorial Hospital by Flight For Life and pronounced dead just after 9 p.m., according to Colorado State Patrol. He was not wearing a seatbelt.

A one-year-old child was a passenger in the 4-Runner and was transported to Memorial Hospital, where he was treated and released. The child was properly restrained in a child safety seat.
