Authorities in charge of the investigation will be combing through all of the forensic evidence left at the scene, including photographs of the vehicles involved. Investigators are likely looking primarily at the suspected DUI driver as the main party who will be held accountable for the crash, however, that cannot be said with certainty until the investigation is over. If authorities conclude that the DUI driver was responsible for the crash, then there will likely be grounds for several personal injury claims to follow.
