Map of the Area
This is a very unsettling accident considering there's some other driver out there who left the victim dying on the side of the highway. Police say that impairment might be a factor--regardless of whether or not this is true, there's no way of knowing for sure what caused the accident while the other vehicle has yet to be located. They say it appears the victim's car rear-ended the other vehicle, and there are plenty of reasons an accident like that can happen. There needs to be a thorough investigation to determine who was involved in this accident and what exactly happened. Someone lost their life in this crash, so nothing less than the complete story will suffice.
