The accident involved a single vehicle with five individuals riding. A car driven by 26-year-old Danis Reynoso Hernandez was traveling at what was determined as an excessive speed. According to the report, the car passed another vehicle in the left lane headed northeast on U.S. 54, and returned to the righthand lane.
