BILLINGS -

The man killed in a Tuesday morning crash on I-90 has been identified.

August Cole Dooper, 25, was killed when he went off the highway, over corrected and the vehicle went into the median and rolled.

Yellowstone County Deputy Coroner Cliff Mahoney says Dooper died when ejected from the vehicle, before he was struck by passing vehicles.

Dooper's family told Q2 he was an incredible athlete, named pitcher of the year for the Laurel Dodgers three years in a row.

He was also a fisherman, hunter and a golfer who recorded a hole-in-one at Pryor Creek this year on a Par 4.

A memorial service is scheduled for Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Laurel High School Auditorium.

Family members set up a memorial fund in Dooper's honor. Donations can be made at any Western Security Bank location and will benefit the Laurel Dodgers Legion Baseball program.
