The car had extensive damage to it after going airborne over the creek and striking the embankment on the East side.  Estimated speed when the vehicle went airborne was 65 MPH in a 30 MPH zone. Paulsen says an autopsy will be conducted. The accident was reported to police by a jogger on the Auld-Brokaw Trail about 6:15.
