A forensic examination of the bicycle and the other vehicle involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will be made to help investigators determine exactly what happened here and why. Other potential factors will be looked into as well including whether or not a driver was under the influence at the time of the accident, whether or not a motorist was distracted, operating the vehicle recklessly, or traveling over the speed limit prior to impact. Each of these factors plus several others will be assessed allowing police officials to draw up a final conclusion.
