Police provided very few details about this collision so there are still many unanswered questions about what led to this accident. We do not know whether or not driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs was a contributing factor. It’s also unknown whether speed or distracted driving played a role. Police will go over the evidence to determine if there was negligence by either motorist to determine fault.
Upon completion of the investigation, the family members of the woman who died may have the right to a wrongful death claim. Surviving family of victims killed in car accidents would potentially be entitled to seek compensation for funeral costs, and loss of love and companionship.
