Authorities are working hard to determine what specifically caused the crash. Forensic teams will examine photographs of the crash site and inspect both vehicles for mechanical issues or system failure. Officials will also consider if drunk driving, drug abuse, negligence, distracted driving, or reckless behavior played any part in the events leading up to the crash. Law enforcement has not determined which driver was at fault, as of now.
Depending on the final results of the investigation, the family of Gutierrez-Avila will have legal rights to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the guilty party.
