A 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt was heading southeast on Salem Avenue at an unknown speed when the driver lost control. The car began to rotate before going off the right side of the road and hitting an RTA pole, Dayton Police indicated in a crash report.

Gwynne was a backseat passenger at the time of the crash.
