In this case, authorities will seek to determine who had the right of way as well as the speed of both involved drivers. Officials will also look into whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not mechanical issues were present with either vehicle and if distractions or recklessness were factors. The investigation will include measurements of the crash scene, collecting evidence left by the two vehicles, noting the point of impact, final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
Pending the result and findings of the investigation, anyone who was hurt may have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit, seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
