Fatal Collision Investigation
Following any traffic accident, investigators conduct a full examination of what happened looking into possible factors such as speed, were there mechanical issues with any of the involved vehicles, were any of the drivers distracted, was the tractor trailer parked off to the side of the freeway or maneuvering safely, were any parties driving under the influence, as well as many others. While liability and the circumstances for this crash itself remain unclear, those not found at-fault are entitled to file a lawsuit against the defendant.
