In this case, officials will conduct a forensic examination of the four vehicles as part of the investigation. Authorities will thoroughly look into the speed of each driver, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, and whether or not any of the motorist was distracted or reckless at the time. They will also investigate and determine why the pedestrian walked into the path of one of the cars involved.

Pending the result and findings of the investigation, the injured and not held responsible for causing the collision will possess the right to pursue a personal injury, seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost income, property damage and pain and suffering.
