Temple Police Department's Accident Reconstruction team was working to determine what caused an elderly driver to veer off the road and hit a retaining wall early Friday morning.

Officers discovered 69-year-old Peter Zoeller in a blue Toyota Camry in the area of 1901 SW HK Dodge Loop around 5:45 AM. He was transported to Baylor Scott & White Hospital, where he later passed away as a result of injuries sustained after he left the roadway.

A witness told officers Zoeller's vehicle veered off the road into the grass and hit a brick retaining wall.

The accident remained under investigation late Friday morning.
