Police apparently mentioned looking into the driver possibly being intoxicated, but it's unclear if they have suspicions or are simply following standard procedure. It does warrant some attention that a woman walking her dog isn't usually doing so in an unfamiliar area. Chances are the victim has done this many times, so what was different here?

A drunk driver could absolutely explain these tragic consequences. But authorities may also just look into intoxicated driving after any fatal crash, as they should. It's going to depend on what investigations uncover here to determine how all of this could have been avoided and whether or not there are issues which need to be addressed.
