An investigation into the circumstances of the crash revealed that Porter had been traveling southbound when he crossed the centerline and went onto the shoulder of the northbound lane. He then overcorrected, went back across the road onto the southbound shoulder, and hit some parked vehicles. Porter was not wearing a seatbelt.

Police say it appears speed and alcohol were factors in this crash.
