While there only seems to be one vehicle involved in this crash, it is uncertain if any other drivers had anything to do with why the car veered off the roadway. Investigators will likely be looking to see if there were any other drivers involved, as well as attempting to conclude if any factors such as speeding, intoxication, or distracted driving played a role. There is the possibility of a negligent driver forcing the victim off the road, or perhaps faulty mechanics leading to this accident. Depending on the results of the investigation, there may be grounds for a wrongful death claim.
