The crash occurred on Interstate 40 near the intersection with Aspen Avenue between at least two vehicles. What caused it to occur is still being investigated by police at this time.

Additionally, intoxicated driving causes about 15,000 deaths per year, while speeding causes around 11,000 fatalities annually.
