Map of the Area
I haven't found any reports clearing up exactly what happened in this accident. It's not even clear which vehicle Vise was in at the time. I can't help but be concerned about whether or not those affected by this accident were given any more specific details on what occurred. Too often there will be accident investigations which don't even come close to explaining what caused the incident, and families get left in the dark about what happened to their loved ones.
For this accident and for any accident where someone is hurt or killed, I encourage victims and their families to consider having a private investigation conducted. Where police investigations can be unsatisfactory or even inaccurate, a private investigation will be based on a dedicated and experienced professional who will leave no stone unturned in the search for the truth. he article below goes further in-depth into the advantages of having a private investigator examine an accident.
