Deputies responding to the scene of the accident at 11:46 p.m. alleged witnesses told them a passenger in the 2004 Ford Focus got out of the automobile and was seen running into the woods before police arrived.

Police said the accident occurred after Michael P. Dillehay apparently lost control of the vehicle as he was driving east and ran through a guardrail.
