Preliminary investigation results indicate a vehicle driven by 43-year-old Redid Velazquez was traveling southbound when it crossed the center line and into the path of a northbound car. 

Velazquez was pronounced dead of blunt force trauma at the scene. Officials attempted to locate Velazquez’s next of kin, but were unsuccessful.
