As Vehicle #1 approached from the opposing direction, the driver of Vehicle #2, who had been traveling westbound, started to brake and pull to the shoulder in an effort to avoid the impending collision. While Vehicle #2 was attempting to stop, Vehicle #1 continued to across the westbound lanes and onto the shoulder where it struck Vehicle #2 head-on.

As a result of the impact Vehicle #2 was driven backwards off the north side of the roadway, coming to rest in the grassy area. Vehicle #1 rotated nearly 180º in a counterclockwise direction, coming to rest in the westbound lane, facing in a westerly direction.

The driver of Vehicle #1 was pinned in the vehicle, sustained fatal injuries, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
