A forensic examination of both the gray sedan and the white pickup truck, 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, 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.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, victims involved in an accident and not found liable are entitled to a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit against the driver responsible pending the results of the investigation. Families of wrongful death victims, as well as injured motorists, may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills and pain and suffering.
