A forensic examination of both the motorcycle and the vehicle, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the cause of the crash. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either the bike or the car, and whether or not one of the drivers involved was distracted or did not yield to the right of way motorist. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the motorcycle or the vehicle such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
