Most situations like this end up being someone drunk on their way home from a bar, meaning the driver and the bar can be responsible for the victim losing their life. With that being said, there are other possibilities worth considering--even ones the driver may not have been able to control. Tire blowouts, medical emergencies, fatigue, defects, some other reckless driver that left the scene--common or not, are authorities looking into all of the possible factors that led to this tragedy?
