In this specific case, authorities are still looking into several factors in order to determine precisely what led to the fatal accident. Aside from factors such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, excessive speed and distracted driving, the inadequate lightings and poor road conditions may also play a role in the occurrence of such incidents that often lead to the death of an individual.
Once the investigation process is over and it proves that this specific pedestrian accident was caused by the negligence of another party or entity, the family of the deceased man may have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault.
