In this case, a forensic examination of the SUV, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the cause of the incident. Authorities will thoroughly look into the speed of the male driver, whether or not alcohol or drugs also played a role, whether or not there was any mechanical issue with the car, and whether or not the motorist was distracted or reckless prior to impact.

Pending the results and findings of the investigation for this collision, the family of Mr. Bob Belanger will possess the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost income, and pain and suffering.
