Mostly, the circumstances surrounding the collision on Fork and Trinity Roads remain unclear. As the investigation continues, forensic teams will inspect the dozer tender and the civilian vehicle and examine photos of the crash site to determine if mechanical failure or system malfunctions caused the driver and operator to lose control. Likewise, officials will consider if drugs, alcohol, negligence, recklessness, or distracted driving played any role in the events leading up to the crash.
