As straight-forward as these reports may seem, it's important to consider even unlikely possible factors that may have led to the crash.

I'm reminded of this one case I heard about out of West Texas involving similar reports. In that situation, authorities said that a pickup ran a stop sign, and a truck t-boned it, killing the pickup driver. Weeks later, however, a friend of the firm working accident reconstruction clued us in on an unusual revelations. Apparently, a construction crew working on the intersection removed the stop signs, then forgot to replace them when they left. In other words, there were no stop signs to run.

I'm not saying anything so unusual happened here, but that's no reason not to be thorough. Mechanical issues, missing signage, road hazards, medical conditions--even if something is unlikely, getting answers is crucial for getting people the help they need.
