The sedan was driven by a 22-year-old female, and her car spun around her on her side of the road. The male driver's vehicle left the roadway and down an embankment.
Despite wearing his seat belt, the older driver did not survive his injuries. Reportedly, the young woman was also wearing her seat belt and survived the collision. Her injuries are serious, but she is expected to survive. The accident investigation is still pending, and it has not been determined if alcohol was consumed by either driver prior to the accident.
