The driver of that vehicle contacted the Iberiville Parish Sheriff's Office and reported to them that he believed he has struck an object along the side of the road. Deputies went out to the location but could not locate any objects that the vehicle might have hit. Family members of Romig went out on searching for him on April 19, 2017 and were able to locate his body. He was pronounced dead at the scene

Troopers report that on the night of the crash Romig was wearing dark-colored clothing. Impairment on the part of Spencer is not suspected to have been a factor. The Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office and the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab assisted in the investigation.
