The 1997 Ford Explorer then overturned into an NID drainage ditch, killing Devin McCune, also 29 years old, who was from Livermore. Krulisky had minor injuries. Steele says no excessive speed was involved. But he says, even at 35 miles an hour, it wouldn’t take much to lose control on a left curve of the road that Krulisky was driving into..
