California Highway Patrol will carry out a forensic examination of the solo vehicle involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators draw up a firm conclusion for what happened. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast the driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the 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, the victim(s) will be granted the right to a personal injury claim, and seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, pain and suffering, lost future income due to work absence from injury.
