I certainly don't know more about what happened here than what's in the news. But looking at some photos of the crash scene, it seems clear this occurred at a crossing controlled by traffic signals. Does that mean someone ran a light or failed to yield here? Was it due to something like speed or poor judgment? Was someone on their phone? Was this something unusual police don't typically look into on their own? Hopefully steps are being taken to ensure more information comes to light soon, especially if there were serious mistakes that led to this accident.
