A forensic examination of all the vehicles, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the liability in the deadly collision. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each party was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the cars, and whether or not one of the drivers involved was distracted or did not yield to the right of way motorist. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicles such as point of impact, its final resting position, skid marks, and gouge marks.
Pending the results of the investigation, the surviving family of the deceased may possess the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit seeking a recompense for the funeral costs, lost wages, loss of love and companionship.
