Factors such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, excessive speed, distracted driving or negligence often cause traffic incidents. These auto accidents usually results in serious injuries, or worse death. It is then necessary that motorists practice certain precautionary measures and obey traffic regulations while traversing the roads, especially the highways, as they are considered as one of the most dangerous routes in the state.

In this case, authorities are still gathering more information and evidence to determine what exactly caused the deadly crash. If the investigation proves that a negligent driver has disregarded the safety of others and has led to the injury or loss of another individual, the victims and their families may have the right to pursue a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit seeking compensation for their losses, injuries and other damages.
