Authorities say the collision happened around 5:45 this morning, when Ulum, who was driving a white Chevrolet Cobalt, tried to pass other vehicles on the highway and hit Lopez’s Jeep Cherokee head-on.

Troopers say both drivers died on impact.

    Well I didn't know Matt for that long but it was fun while it lasted. He was loved by many and respected by even more, including me. He will be remembered and missed. R.I.P ~ "ChEeSeHeAd"
