Map of the Area
Given that, according to current reports, this accident happened near an intersection, and it was a side impact, it's quite likely the accident happened when one of the vehicles was in the course of making a turn when they collided. This means that responsibility will likely come down to who is determined to have had the right of way as that turn was taking place, which is something best determined by an investigator experienced in looking into crashes involving commercial vehicles.
