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.
In the case of an accident caused by negligence or distracted driving, each of the non-guilty injured victims will have the legal right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the guilty party.
