As indicated in the report, officials have yet to determine what specifically caused the truck and the mini-cooper to collide at Highway 49 and Highway 89. As the investigation continues, officials will consider if one or both drivers had consumed alcohol or drugs prior to operating their vehicles or has simply failed to comply with established traffic laws. Simultaneously, forensic teams will inspect both vehicles and examine photos of the crash site to determine if mechanical issues or system failure forced the vehicles to swerve out of control.
