What Caused This Crash?

Did an auto defect or mechanical malfunction cause or contribute to this rollover accident? Was there a dangerous condition on the roadway, which may have led to the incident? Were any other vehicles involved in this crash? Did the elderly driver suffer a medical condition? I trust officials are looking into these and other issues in order to determine what occurred here and why.
