Fatal Accident

 

An unnamed driver was traveling south on El Centro Boulevard in a Mercedes approaching Marcum Road. El Centro Boulevard, at this location, has a large sweeping left turn as it intersected by Marcum Road. The driver approached this location at an unknown speed and entered this sweeping turn. Due to the speed at which the driver was traveling, the vehicle was allowed to slide off of the roadway and hit a dirt embankment east of El Centro Boulevard. The momentum at which the Mercedes struck this dirt embankment caused the vehicle to roll over several times. During this sequence of events, the driver was ejected from the vehicle. The vehicle then came to rest approximately 48 feet east of El Centro Boulevard. The driver was located near the scene. The driver was not wearing her seatbelt and it’s unknown whether drugs/alcohol played a factor in this collision, as it remains under investigation. Name of driver pending notification.
