A forensic examination of both the Dodge Durango and the van involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. It appears, however, that the driver of the Dodge ran a red light and ultimately caused the collision based on the facts provided thus far. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, and whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by each 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, victims involved in an accident and not found liable are entitled to personal injury lawsuit against the driver pending the results of the investigation. Injured victims may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills and pain and suffering.
