In this case, there are several questions that need to be resolved in order to determine the liability in the crash. Was the driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs a factor? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Why did the driver of the Kia Forte cross over the double yellow line? Was that motorist reckless or negligent at some point?

Pending the results and findings of the for this incident, the injured victim may have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the party who apparently neglected the safety of other people on the road.
