Wrongful Deaths in California
Presently, authorities are unsure of what circumstances led up to the crash. As part of the ongoing investigation, forensic teams will inspect the Chevrolet for mechanical issues or system failure and will analyze photos of the crash site. Officials will also consider if the driver had consumed drugs or alcohol prior to driving or had failed to comply with traffic laws.
By law, drivers are required to decrease speed and give the right of way to pedestrians in marked and unmarked crossing zones. Based on this information, officials will look into whether or not the female victim had been walking across a marked pedestrian zone.
