According to the authorities, the vehicle was traveling at an unknown speed on the westbound lanes of the Highway 20 when the vehicle left the roadway. The reports show that the vehicle was approaching Plantz Road when it left the road unexpectedly.

Due to the collision, the Dodge Neon traveled down an embankment off the south side of the road, where the vehicle rested facing east. The driver was reportedly killed as a result of the crash. The second vehicle involved had two occupants, the driver and a 14-year-old. They were both rushed to the hospital sustaining minor to moderate injuries.
