Inves­ti­ga­tors now say they’re pretty sure that it was a com­bi­na­tion of alco­hol and speed that lead to a rollover crash Sun­day night that left a man from Angola crit­i­cally injured.

The Steuben County Sheriff’s Depart­ment says it was just after 11 p.m. when 30 year old Joseph E. Glenn of Angola, dri­ving a Ford Ranger north on State Road 827 south of Fre­mont, failed to nego­ti­ate a curve near Lake­side Ceme­tery and went off the road. Glenn’s truck then came back onto the road, slid side­ways, and went back off the road a sec­ond time. It then hit an embank­ment and rolled sev­eral times. Fre­mont fire­fight­ers had to extri­cate Glenn from his vehi­cle.

He was air­lifted to Parkview Hos­pi­tal with a frac­tured shoul­der and ribs, where at last report, he was listed in crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

Inves­ti­ga­tors on Tues­day said they believe Glenn was wear­ing a seat­belt, but they also believe speed and alco­hol were con­tribut­ing fac­tors in the crash, which is still under inves­ti­ga­tion today.
