Gray said Jenkins appeared to have been traveling south on Salem Street, a heavily traveled residential road, near Campbell Road. The posted speed limit there is 35 miles per hour, he said.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation, said Gray, adding that the vehicle sustained “extensive damage.” The North Andover Police accident reconstruction team returned to the scene today, after inclement weather interrupted the investigation Sunday.
