According to a Clarksville Police Department report, Elliott apparently had been driving west on the U.S. 58 west bypass, exiting at Route 15 south and then crossing both lanes of the highway before crossing a ditch and striking an embankment and a fence. Clarksville Police Cpl. James Crawford reported that the crash may have been caused by a medical problem, since there was no evidence the driver had skidded or attempted to swerve.
