Bristol – Broad Street Crash Update

Authorities have released more info regarding last Tuesday’s fatal accident in Bristol.

At approximately 9:22 a.m., he was driving a Ford Focus on Broad Street when the vehicle veered off the roadway and crashed into a utility pole. Sidelinger was pronounced dead in the hospital. Authorities are still investigating the case and are waiting for the results of the victim’s autopsy which could take weeks. Investigators are looking at an undiscovered medical issue as the cause of the crash and, as of posting time, there is still no evidence suggesting DUI could be a factor.
