He overcorrected to the right and the vehicle left the roadway, overturned and hit a tree. After hitting the tree the vehicle continued rolling down an embankment into a canal.

Bordelon was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and was ejected from the vehicle, he sustained fatal injuries. A 16-yr-old front seat passenger was wearing a seat belt and suffered serious injuries. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
