With crashes like this, folks need to understand why independent investigations can be so crucial. Even if the cause of the crash was "obvious," other important factors may not be.

For example, whenever a toddler is seriously hurt in a crash, one thing which warrants consideration is the car seat involved, if any. That's because there have been many recalls over the years for seats which, even when used properly, fail to protect a child properly. For all we know, evidence could show this child would have been more or less okay had they been in a proper child seat.

I'm not trying to say I know something not already available to the public. It's simply an example of why I would never leave a crash like this solely up to authorities who may have already moved on to other priorities while there could still be a family out there in need of answers.
