Police add that the driver of the Tahoe, who'd also been wearing a seat belt during the crash, was taken to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries.

In accord with standard procedure, State Police collected blood samples from both Aucoin and the driver of the Tahoe; these samples will be analyzed to shed light on whether impairment was a factor in the incident.
