Investigators say a medical condition may be to blame for an accident that left one man dead Wednesday morning.

State Patrol says the driver drifted into the median, hit a divider, spun into the oncoming lanes of traffic and off the side of the road before sliding down an embankment.

The accident happened at 6:35 a.m. on Highway 285, five miles north of Conifer.

The driver's name has not been released, pending the notification of the family.

Investigators say speed, alcohol and drugs are not considered factors in the crash.
