I sometimes have people bring up crashes like this as an example that sometimes further investigations just aren't necessary. Well, even a crash like this may not be the exception. I was discussing a crash with a colleague where a woman was texting and driving, and she crashed her car. Looking further into it, however, it turned out she wasn't going fast enough to cause the injuries she sustained. So what happened? Well, it turned out that her airbag was defective. So while she caused the crash, the airbag caused the injuries. I'm not saying anything like that happened here, but there's no real way to say for sure until an experienced investigator looks at all the facts.
