Grumman OV-1 Mohawk, not North American OV-10 Bronco. The N-number is confusing. Hard today what happened from the video. He may or may not have been doing aerobatics or had a health issue. You can hear that one or both engines were running at the time of impact. Very sad and condolences to all.
Was it Richard Sugden?

Even if they were active, given the rate of descent for the last 5+ seconds of flight, there's no way they would have saved him. Even the best ejection seats in the world have substantial difficulty overcoming sink rates.

Talked to someone that knows him personally and was at the show. He wasn’t doing aerobatics and wasn’t coming out of the bottom of a loop. The thought right now is that he became impaired. Note that there’s no attempt to change the trajectory or raise the nose above the horizon. It also might have been a mechanical, such as flight control failure. I don’t know the OV-1. These are the thoughts of those that saw it happen.
