Bobbitt sustained serious injuries as a result of the crash. He was transported to a local hospital, where he ultimately succumbed to his injuries. The driver of the Mercury sustained minor injuries and was also transported to a local hospital for treatment. Restraint use and driver impairment remain part of the ongoing investigation at this time. Toxicology samples were obtained from both drivers for analysis.
Motorists should always be cognizant of their surroundings and obey posted traffic control signs. Making good choices while in motor vehicles such as never driving while impaired, always ensuring every occupant is properly restrained, and obeying all traffic laws can often mean the difference between life and death.
