There isn't a lot of clear information yet about how exactly this crash happened or what caused it, but considering someone had to be airlifted from the scene a careful investigation seems in order. To find the truth of what happened many possible factors must be considered, such as:

  • Operator errors like distraction, speeding, or failure to yield;
  • Problems or defects in the vehicles;
  • Road conditions and design;
  • Visibility and sightlines;
  • Inclement weather;
  • Traffic conditions at the time; and
  • Anything else that might have influenced or caused the crash.

Checking into all those potential factors is important when learning the whole story and determining who or what might be responsible for the damage. Unfortunately police might not go to the necessary lengths, which is why after major accidents I often suggest a second look by independent experts. Sometimes they only confirm what police originally thought, but in many cases they uncover new details that change how a wreck is perceived and what should follow it. Whatever is learned, the victims deserve to know every effort was made to learn the whole story.
