Preliminary investigation revealed the pickup truck was traveling south on SR 347 near MP180 when the vehicle lost control and went into the median.

While in the median, the vehicle rolled once and rotated counterclockwise, and the vehicle continued traveling into the northbound lane of traffic with the rear of the vehicle leading.
