According to the report released by troopers, Wilson was traveling northbound on the Turnpike when for an unknown reason his vehicle left the paved portion of the road. Wilson attempted to correct his path, however, ended up overcorrecting and losing control of the vehicle.

The vehicle then overturned and Wilson was partially ejected from his car and pinned underneath it.

Troopers stated in the report that Wilson was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the incident.
