A forensic examination of the Mercedes and the tow-truck, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. 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 either vehicle, 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 the car and the truck such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
The surviving family of Ms. Eusebia Umblas and Ms. Pacita Costales may have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit pending the result of the investigation. The claim will include a recompense for the funeral costs, hospital bills, loss of future income, and loss of love and companionship.
