The Major Accident Investigation Team is trying to find out what caused two accidents over the weekend.
The first happened on Saturday around 11:20pm on the westbound lane of I16. Police say 57-year-old Feldon Williams was approaching mile marker 163 at a high rate of speed when he lost control of his 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera while changing lanes. It spun into the guardrail, flipped over it and ended up in an embankment before catching fire.
Williams was transported to Memorial and is in critical condition.
MAIT responded to a second accident on Sunday around 5:35pm. on Green Island Road and Diamond Causeway. Investigators say a 17-year-old female was driving north on Green Island Road in a Honda CRV. The driver failed to stop at a stop sign as she approached Diamond Causeway.
68-year-old Robert Flynn and his wife Beverly were traveling west on Landings Way toward the Diamond Causeway. Flynn did stop at the stop sign and was struck by the Honda CRV. Investigators say the impact caused both vehicles to travel off of the roadway onto the northeast corner of the intersection. Flynn died at the scene. His wife and the driver of the Honda were transported to MUMC with non-life threatening injuries.
Both cases remain under investigation by MAIT.
