69-year-old Raymond Dale Foley was admitted to an area hospital for treatment to minor injuries suffered in yesterday's crash. Investigators determined that Foley was driving a 1992 Ford Aerostar van at a high rate of speed, weaving in and out of his lane, prior to crashing into a parked pick-up truck and utility trailer, which caused Foley's van to roll over.

The investigation is still continuing but alcohol, and the driver's speed are factors.
