A sentence so bad it's good

Police said they believe the driver, whose name was not released, lost control of the vehicle for unknown reasons.

A few things can be inferred here, and I'm not sure which one's right:

1) The police don't know why the driver lost control;

2) The police aren't sure if they think that the driver lost control;

3) The police don't know if the driver knew why he/she was losing control;

4) The police are keeping in mind the possibility that the driver might have lost control for known reasons;

5) The police aren't even that sure that the driver lost control and, in fact, even got into an accident at all.

I got a pretzel in my head.
