    Sudden incapacitating illness (stroke, heart attack).

    Dozens of possibilities.

    How do you know it was an accident? It's possible it was on purpose.

    Typically at that hour, being tired, alcohol, and/or trying to avoid an animal would be likely possibilities.

  • Alcohol/drugs always comes first in mind. That said, people shouldn't be quick to dismiss other factors such as fatigue, or a medical emergency like blood sugar issues or a seizure.

    Driver fell asleep. Drunks usually stack up earlier in the night.
