With a crash like this, it's important to avoid jumping to conclusions. A rear-end collision typically happens because someone wasn't paying attention, fell asleep at the wheel, or otherwise failed to avoid someone ahead of them. However, it would be irresponsible not to consider other possibilities. For example, there was a crash I looked into a while back where further investigations showed an 18-wheeler hit from behind wasn't actually on the shoulder but rather just pulled off the shoulder without its lights on. Maybe nothing like that happened here, but it wouldn't be the first time authorities missed something crucial. Ensuring there are thorough investigations is the least one could do for a grieving family.
