The preliminary investigation indicates the driver was eastbound on Highway 12 in the westbound lane.
"It appears the driver attempted to change onto the proper side of the road by driving over the center median. Once over the median, the vehicle darted across the intersection, collided with the signal pole, and rolled several times," the news release said.
The investigation into the crash remains active.
