Based on the news reports, the operator of the truck is accused of speeding at the time of the incident. Authorities will continue to investigate the collision, and will determine whether or not alcohol or drugs also played a role, whether or not there was a mechanical issue with the truck and whether or not the driver was distracted prior to impact. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the bus and the truck, 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 injured and not held responsible for causing the crash 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.
