Troopers suspect that drugs or alcohol, along with excessive speed, played roles in the crash, but it remained under investigation. Furthermore, Curtis was not wearing a seatbelt, UHP said.

The westbound vehicle ran off the highway to the right, striking a parked and unoccupied Ford pickup truck and trailer.

According to state court records, Curtis had a rap sheet going back more than a decade that included numerous counts of theft, burglary, possession of stolen vehicles and forgery as well as driving while under the influence of alcohol.
