According to officials, 23-year-old Zachery Rodriguez was in a Nissan Sentra said to be going westbound on County Road 417. From oncoming lanes, it appears an eastbound Toyota Camry attempted to pass vehicles on the left, entering the path of and colliding head-on with Rodriguez's car.

Due to the collision, Rodriguez sustained fatal injuries. The driver of the Toyota reportedly had incapacitating injuries. No other injuries were reported. Authorities say there is still a pending blood draw test result, and no further information has been confirmed.

It's not at all unusual for there to be a blood draw after a serious wreck like this. Alcohol and drugs are common, so it's often standard procedure in these situations to check for intoxicants just to be thorough. But this long after the crash, it's curious not to see any definitive public statement that yes, there were intoxicants, or no, there were no substances involved. Have they learned anything more about this fatal crash that they simply haven't released to the public yet?
