A press release stated Lambertz over-corrected and the vehicle left the roadway to the south, entering a ditch where the vehicle rolled over and came to rest. During the time of the wreck, there was a presence of heavy fog causing low visibility.

Witness statements stated they observed the vehicle pass them at a high rate of speed. One of the witnesses was the first on scene to assist Lambertz and contact 911.

The investigation is ongoing and a citation is pending, the press release stated.

Cortland and Clatonia Fire and Rescue also responded to the accident. Seat belts were in use and neither alcohol or drugs were a factor.
