Montiel says the driver appears to have veered onto the right shoulder and then overcorrected in the other direction into the lane carrying oncoming traffic. The driver then swerved back to the right and went off the road.
Montiel says neither speed nor alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash.MORE NEWS: U.S. Supreme Court Sides With College Athletes In Key Compensation Case
