I find people tend to look at details like these and consider everything open-and-shut. According to the information, someone is clearly at fault, so what more is there to know? Well, there can always be other possible factors worth looking into.
Did seatbelts and airbags work properly? Was there anything obstructing view of the intersection? Is this a notoriously dangerous intersection that needs more signs or lights? Do city officials need to reconsider the speed limit or enact measures to help prevent speeding? Even if something seems insignificant, any piece of information can be crucial for a family in search of answers.
