Scene of the Accident
View of the Road
While we don’t quite have the information from the accident needed to speculate on fault, more than likely, whichever vehicle is found to have crossed over is going to be the faulted party. This can be determined through witness statements, skid marks on the road, and where impact debris was scattered on the road. Since we don’t have all the facts yet though, I can’t pinpoint what happened, but would like to.
