Brabant said investigators and collision experts are trying to piece together what happened.

“We’re going to try to see if the vehicle is accelerating, which was the maneuver that made the driver lose control, so all of these questions can be looked into by investigators,” he said.

“They’ll be looking at security cameras when they are available to give us a better idea.”

The police have not ruled out that the driver may have experienced a medical emergency.

The driver remained in critical condition on Thursday afternoon.
