Authorities are working hard to determine what specifically caused the crash. Forensic teams will examine photographs of the crash site and inspect all vehicles involved for mechanical issues or system failure. Officials will also consider if drunk driving, drug abuse, negligence, distracted driving, or reckless behavior played any part in the events leading up to the crash. Authorities have not specified if one or both drivers will be held liable for the accident.
In the case of an accident caused by negligence or distracted driving, the non-guilty injured victims will have the legal right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the guilty party.
