An investigation into a woman who was fatally struck by a vehicle in Lake Ozark, leads back to NASCAR star Clint Bowyer.

That according to the Lake Ozark police department, who tells CBS Sports that Fox Sports analyst Clint Bowyer was involved in the crash that happened on June 5, in which 47-year-old Mary Jane Simmons of Camdenton was killed.

Officials say the crash occurred just before 9 p.m. on Sunday, June 5, following the NASCAR Cup Series race at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway in St. Louis.

Bowyer was apparently driving westbound on U.S. 54 approaching Missouri 242 when he struck the woman, who was walking along the roadway.

Investigators say Bowyer hit his brakes when he realized the crash had occurred, called 911, and pointed first responders to the victim.

Authorities say Bowyer showed zero signs of impairment and provided a roadside sample of .000 blood alcohol content.

The crash report states that Simmons was under the influence of drugs, with a crystalline substance found among her belongings believed to be methamphetamine.
