Gallup Police Department investigators will have to look to the results of an autopsy for answers on what caused Johnie Williams, 80, to run a stop sign and hit another vehicle.

GPD Capt. Rick White said that alcohol was not a factor in the crash that occurred at about 4 pm Wednesday.

"It looks like it might be a medical reason, possibly," he said.

The accident took place at Mendoza and Armand Ortega Rd, near Western Skies Trailer Park. Williams was traveling southbound on Armand Ortega when he hit another vehicle heading westbound on Mendoza.

The other driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
