CRAWFORD COUNTY — A 34-year-old West Salem Township man was killed in a rollover crash early Sunday on U.S. Route 322 just west of East State Road in South Shenango Township, Crawford County, said state police at Meadville.

Aaron C. Byers was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Police said he lost control of the westbound 1995 BMW he was driving on a left-hand curve at 1:40 a.m. The car rolled several times and Byers was thrown from it, police said.

Just two minutes after the crash, Byers’ disabled car was struck by a state police patrol car, causing minor injuries to the trooper, according to the Meadville Tribune.
