RV and Car Collision in Nevada City
As indicated in the initial report, officials are still unsure of why the Ford Ranger and the RV collided on the Interstate 80 Freeway. As the investigation continues, officials will consider if drugs, alcohol, negligence, recklessness, or distracted driving played any role in the events leading up to the accident. Likewise, forensic teams will inspect the Ford and the RV and examine photos of the crash site to determine if mechanical issues or system failure contributed to the crash in any way.
Non-guilty victims involved in a brutal accident of this nature can potentially file a personal injury lawsuit and, ultimately, receive compensation for multiple issues including medical bills, painful injuries, and vehicle damage.
