Officials believe excessive speed in an auto accident on Thursday led to the Saturday death of a Davenport teen.

Davenport police report Collin Ingold, 18, was riding in a 1997 Lincoln Continental driven by 18-year-old Kai Miller at about 2:53 p.m. Thursday when Mr. Miller lost control of the vehicle, which was traveling east on Kirkwood Boulevard. The police report states the vehicle then left the roadway and struck a tree.

The crash happened when Mr. Miller, who received minor injuries, navigated the curve in the roadway at Esplanade Avenue, police said.

According to Davenport police, Mr. Ingold was transported to Genesis Medical Center East Campus by Medic for treatment of serious injuries. Later he was transferred to Iowa City Hospitals, where he died Saturday as a result of the injuries he received in the crash.

Officials say there is no evidence that drugs or alcohol were contributing factors.

The investigation is ongoing and is being conducted by the Davenport Police Crash Investigation Unit, according to Officer Kristopher Mayer.
