Based on the news report, the driver of the Toyota Camry will likely be held responsible for causing the incident that injured several innocent children. Authorities will continue to investigate and determine why that motorist drove into the path of the other car, whether or not alcohol or drugs were also involved, whether or not there was any mechanical issue with the Camry, and whether or not the party who prompted the crash was speeding or distracted at the time. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the two cars such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
Pending the results and findings of the investigation for this wreck, the injured and not held responsible for causing the collision will possess the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault individual. The claim will include the compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost income, property damage and pain and suffering.
