“Alcohol and speed were factors in the crash,” said Sheriff Mast. The suspect, who is being charged with third-offense operating while intoxicated and second-offense driving while license suspended, went off the road and hit a tree with the 2008 Nissan Rogue he was driving. 

The man was the lone occupant of the vehicle.
