Map of the Area
In some of the comments about this accident, I've seen speculation both sides of the fence. Some people are quick to believe the Cruze was speeding when it crash into the trailer, and some have speculated that the trailer may not have had any working lights at the time. It could be that one side is right, maybe both to some degree, or even neither. I think this simply highlights how hectic details can be following a crash, especially when the ones who probably know what happened died in the crash.
This is why I so often emphasize how crucial it is to a private investigator look at an accident. News reports, wild speculation, and incomplete police investigations can often leave the facts muddied, inaccurate, or simply missing. Especially when a loved one is lost in an accident like this, those affected deserve to know the truth without having to sift through baseless claim or shoddy accident summaries.
A private investigator will be an asset in ensuring that the details are examined by a professional who has the tools necessary to investigate an accident thoroughly and the years of experience to back it up. This has the obvious advantage of offering a chance at justice, but it gives them an opportunity, at the very least, to seek closure to a time of immeasurable hardship.
