The accident happened around 2:00 AM Sunday when the car left the roadway for an unknown reason and flipped on its side. Alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the crash. The coroner’s release identified Galvan as a passenger but preliminary reports of the accident had him as the driver, possibly driving under the influence.
