Also injured in the crash was the driver of the second vehicle. They were transported to the hospital and treated for minor injuries.

Sgt. Dugan said that an investigation for the crash being caused by possible DUI impairment has been opened. Police are also looking into a possible connection to the driver and a hit and run accident from earlier the same day.
