While these facts may seem pretty straight forward at a glance, it's important that investigators are thorough enough to really look into the reasonable prudence of the drivers involved here. Was the Toyota driver being prudent avoiding the debris and simply lost control due to factors he couldn't control? Was it reasonably prudent for the truck driver to be on the shoulder? Would a reasonably prudent driver have been able to avoid hitting the Toyota, and the Honda driver somehow failed to take those precautions? There are many different possible answers to those questions, likely and otherwise. Taking steps to ensure there is clear evidence will no doubt be crucial in getting folks the help they need.
