A forensic examination of both the motorcycle and the other vehicle involved, 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 how fast each driver was going, which driver had the right-of-way, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, and whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by each vehicle such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.
