Morgan, for unknown reasons, left the roadway in his 2002 Chevrolet Blazer approximately 7/10 of a mile north of Ludlum Road travelling onto the west shoulder of the roadway.

Morgan overcorrected and traveled across the northbound lane onto the east shoulder and collided with an electrical box and a power with the front of his vehicle. Morgan’s vehicle overturned and he was ejected from the vehicle landing in a wooded area on the east side of the roadway.

According to FHP, Morgan was not wearing a seatbelt and alcohol could be a factor.
