People tend to see crashes like this, figure it's all about who had the right-of-way, and that's that. As often as that's all the attention a car crash gets, properly investigating them is actually more intensive than people may realize. Speeds, maintenance, road conditions, mechanical defects, faulty airbags, cell phone records, alcohol, other vehicles that left the scene—likely or not, there are many factors experienced accident reconstructionists look into to ensure all the facts are clear. What's not clear here is if authorities took those steps or if there is more to this story.
