A forensic examination of both the vehicle and the pedestrian victim, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will be made to help investigators determine the liability in the deadly accident. Other potential factors will be looked into as well including whether or not the driver was under the influence at the time of the accident, whether or not the motorist was distracted, operating the vehicle recklessly, or traveling over the speed limit prior to impact. Each of these factors plus several others will be assessed allowing police officials to draw up a final conclusion.
