The vehicle, a 1988 Chevrolet Corvette convertible, had been westbound on a straight and level portion of Barnes County Road 38, a paved county road, before gradually drifting into the north ditch where it rotated clockwise and rolled, ejecting the driver. The vehicle and driver came to rest in a soybean field.

The crash remains under investigation.
