Authorities are working hard to determine what specifically caused the crash. Forensic teams will examine photographs of the crash site and inspect the Kia and Mitsubishi 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 responsible for the crash.
As authorized by the final case results, the non-guilty victims will have the legal right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the guilty party.
