Investigators said that the incident happened at around 11:30 p.m. along County Road 1048 at the intersection of Highway 214.
Officials said that 39-year-old Orlando Martir-Galindo was in a vehicle traveling eastbound on CR 1048. At the intersection, the vehicle somehow ran off the side of the road where it overturned.

With single-vehicle wrecks, there are so many different possible factors to consider, some of which can be very challenging. Mechanical issues, defects, road hazards, hit-and-runs, etc. However, some people are quick to blame drivers after single-vehicle wrecks, assuming the victim was being reckless. Is that possible? Of course, but it's outright irresponsible—not to mention disrespectful—to jump to such conclusions without clear evidence. Are proper steps being taken here to get this man's family the answers they need, or are authorities treating this like it isn't a high priority?
