Police believe alcohol is a possible factor, but they couldn’t say for sure if this was a case of drunk driving. Investigators are awaiting blood test results. The rainy weather could also be a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.

Southbound I-75 was closed from West Road to Gibraltar Road for several hours, but has since reopened.
