Something that folks don't often consider is just how complex a crash like this can be. It's not always as simple as seeing who failed to yield, if alcohol was involved, or if someone was on their cell phone. Other important factors are worth looking into, and even authorities may let those things slip through the cracks if they aren't careful.
Was there missing signage or faulty signals? Did someone's vehicle have defects? Did airbags and seatbelts function properly? Is this a notoriously dangerous intersection? Likely or not, looking into these things can be crucial for victims and families. That's why it's important to understand why there need to be steps taken to look into whatever authorities may have overlooked.
