WEST HAVEN, Vt. (AP) - Vermont state police say they are investigating the death of a driver at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in West Haven after he struck a wall head-on and died of his injuries several hours later.

Authorities say 61-year-old Ronald Casey, of Manchester, Vermont, drove straight through turn four at the track at about 9:15 p.m. Sunday. He was taken to Rutland Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead just after midnight.

Police say Casey may have driven off the course due to a medical event. They say an autopsy will be done to determine cause and manner of death.

The investigation is ongoing.
