California Highway Patrol will carry out a forensic examination of the vehicle involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators draw up a firm conclusion for what happened. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast the driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the vehicle, whether or not the driver ran a red light. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicle such as point of impact, final resting positions of the vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the family members of the juvenile and the other victim(s) will be granted the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver who caused the collision. Personal injury victims have the right to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, and pain and suffering.
