The investigation into this unfortunate incident will chiefly focus on the events that led up to it. Police will look into whether or not the pedestrian clearly had the right-of-way, and any negligent actions that may have been taken by the driver of the Nissan. Negligent behavior may be categorized as intoxication, distracted driving, and excessive speeding. Investigators will certainly be looking into these possible factors.
Depending on the conclusive results and findings of the investigation, there may be a solid personal injury lawsuit to follow.
