Investigators say the vehicle ran off the road, traveled 520 feet, rolled through this field, stopping on the other side of a row of hedges hedges.

Jennifer Jones was driving right behind Taylor and saw him swerving off the road.

"When I saw him take that turn and it was so fast and there was just so much dirt kicking up I thought this isn't good," said Jennifer Jones.

Dougherty County Police aren't sure what caused the crash, but they say Taylor was taking several medications for health problems.
