A forensic examination of the Honda and the Nissan, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine what exactly caused the tragic incident. Authorities will thoroughly look into the speed of each driver, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the cars, and whether or not one of the drivers involved was distracted or simply did not yield to the right of way motorist. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by both vehicles, such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
Pending the results and findings of the investigation for this incident, the surviving families of the deceased will be granted the right to pursue a wrongful death claim.
