A forensic examination of the Toyota Scion TC and the Chevrolet Suburban, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine what exactly led to the tragic crash. Authorities will thoroughly look into the speed of each driver, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the cars, and whether or not one of the drivers was distracted or simply did not yield to the right of way motorist. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by both vehicles such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
Pending the results and findings of the investigation for this collision, the injured and held not responsible for the wreck will be granted the right to file a personal injury lawsuit seeking a compensation for all the medical expenses and hospital bills, pain and suffering, and lost future income.
