The exact factors contributing to the accident are still under investigation at this time.
Map of the Area
Reports have indicated that the car failed to stop at the intersection, but they still haven't cleared up why. A lot of people will automatically assume the driver was at fault, and in all likelihood this is the case. However, just because something is common doesn't mean it applies to every accident. There have been many instances where something other than driver error caused a vehicle to lose control. These sorts of factors tend to be subtle and don't often show up in preliminary police investigations. It's important that any accident involving serious injury is looked at by an experienced professional so that all possible factors can be considered.
