Alicia Renee Carreras, 20, veered of the road and struck a tree around 3 a.m., but her wrecked 2005 Nissan Maxima was not discovered by a passing motorist until 5:20 a.m.

Alcohol and drugs are not suspected. Even so, toxicology reports have been ordered and the results are expected to take at least two weeks.
