In this case, a forensic examination of the Toyota pickup truck, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the cause of the incident. Authorities will thoroughly look into the speed of the teen driver, whether or not alcohol or drugs also played a role, whether or not there was any mechanical issue with the Dodge Ram pickup, and whether or not the young motorist was distracted or reckless when the accident occurred.
