One thing which stood out to me was this was apparently deemed a "mass casualty" event due to the number of patients. Hopefully that's just a technicality, if a concerning one. But when I see details like that, my concern turns to how chaotic the scene was for authorities. With serious crashes, authorities that don't have a chance to look at the information thoroughly may miss something important. Were authorities here able to get things in order and properly look into what happened here?
