An MDA paramedic said the man was "unconscious, not breathing and without a pulse" when rescue forces arrived. Police is still investigating what caused the driver to veer off his lane.

Police believe the driver fled the scene after the accident. They reportedly questioned a man suspected of being present in the car during the accident, but he claims not to have been driving it.
