James Heye Jr. Killed in Single-Vehicle Accident in Comal County, TX

Investigators said they were called to the area of Ammann Road and Hidden Oaks Drive at around 9:00 p.m. They said that 45-year-old James Heye Jr. was in a Toyota Sequoia traveling southbound on Hidden Oaks Drive. While doing so, the vehicle somehow went off-road, went into a skid, then overturned.
Heye sustained injuries which proved fatal. Authorities didn't mention anyone else being involved. There aren't enough details right now to confirm the cause of the the crash.
That last sentence is something I find a lot of people simply overlook. I've been doing this for 30 years. When I say there are all kinds of reasons a vehicle can lose control, I mean it. Mechanical issues, tire blowouts, road hazards, medical emergencies, animals in the road, other drivers leaving the scene, etc.
Obviously there are common mistakes drivers can make, but it doesn't do any good to sit around jumping to conclusions. It's especially not helpful to the victim's loved ones that deserve to know authorities are getting all the facts. My hope is authorities here were given the time they needed to get clear answers for those who lost their loved one here.
