A forensic examination of the bicycle and the vehicle, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the liability in the deadly collision. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each party was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the bike and the car, and whether or not one of the parties 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 bicycle and the vehicle such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
The surviving family of Mr. Raul Otiz may possess the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit pending the results of the investigation. Family members of wrongful death victims are entitled to a recompense for the funeral costs, lost wages, loss of love and companionship.
