Scene of the Accident
View from the Road
I think a lot of people tend to look at accidents like this one and assume that it was the fault of the driver. Of course, there are plenty of accidents in which that’s the case, but not all of them are like that. Defects in the vehicle itself, such as failed brakes, or possibly a tire that blows out can also cause an accident. Until someone’s actually able to get a look inside this vehicle, we won’t be able to say for sure what caused the accident.
