In all, there were eight people—the driver and seven passengers—aboard the 15-passenger van when it left the roadway and rolled over after exiting I-75 North at the Norris/Clinton exit just after 5:30 am Monday. 

The driver, 56-year-old Cory Caldwell, and one of the passengers identified as 34-year-old Lahonna D. Charles, both died at the scene.
