Beyond this, authorities haven't mentioned any additional details publicly. That's not exactly unusual, considering it just happened (at time of writing). Some people may think there's not much to discuss since this is a rear-end collision. But rear-end collisions, despite the age-old myth, are not automatically anyone's fault.

Brake failure, road hazards, being cut off, swerving to avoid another reckless driver, medical conditions, broken taillights or brake lights—these are all possible reasons a driver could rear-end someone without actually doing anything wrong. So while it's true that many rear-end collisions are the result of the rear driver's negligence, folks should avoid jumping to conclusions until the facts become clear.
