It is not clear what caused this tragic accident. This report leaves more questions than answers. Did an auto defect cause Martin to lose control of his vehicle? Was there a dangerous roadway? Did fatigue or distraction cause him to crash? A thorough investigation of the vehicle and the accident scene will help shed more light onto what happened and why.
