Larry was known for his slow cautious driving. He was also known for not wearing a seat belt in order to be ready at a moment's notice to exit his vehicle. Larry was on his way to an elk hunting camp traveling a road he was familiar with when his vehicle accelerated into a right-hand turn. Tracks showed his vehicle crossed over the left oncoming traffic lane. Larry was able to control his vehicle through the turn until the left front wheel struck a rock in the ditch, flipping the vehicle. Larry was killed by the impact.
