Based on the news reports, the driver of the Mercury Grand Marquis may be held liable for causing the collision that led to the injuries of several innocent parties involved. The motorist allegedly swerved into the opposite lane and prompted a multi-car wreck. Authorities will continue to investigate and determine whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, and whether or not there was any mechanical issue with the Mercury at the time and whether or not the motorist was speeding or distracted prior to impact. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the three vehicles such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
The injured and held not responsible for the crash, Maria Salcedo Guerra and Jaime Robles, will have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit, seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
