At least one person in the vehicle died due to the collision. It is unclear at this time if anyone else was involved. The cause of the crash remains unclear at this time.

I always talk about how challenging single vehicle wrecks like this can be for investigators because there so many unusual things that can happen a driver simply can't avoid. I know everyone tends to think this always involves a driver making a mistake. That's often true, of course, considering things like distraction, speeding, and alcohol. But if investigators don't consider other possibilities, how can they tell the victim's loved ones they're getting the full story? That should be their priority, so making sure nothing unusual slips through the cracks should also be a priority.
