When you're dealing with single-vehicle accidents like these, examining how the vehicle performed and behaved is key. Why is this important? Well, most automobiles have extremely high standards for safety. Earmarking for a moment what it was that caused the vehicle to lose control, if there was chance the built-in safety features in this car failed, the manufacturer may bear some responsibility for this crash going from survivable to fatal. Considering the prevalence of high profile auto defects reported by the media, it would come as no great surprise if this particular vehicle suffered from one such defect. That being said, we may never know unless someone who specializes in these types of accidents takes a closer look.
