Some would say that car crashes are not accidents, as they have a cause. In many cases, it is due to a driver being distracted, reckless or intoxicated. The aftermath of some motor vehicle collisions can be devastating. What can be even more troubling is that the severity of the crash can increase the complexities of the investigation process. It may not be initially clear how the crash occurred, and if there is no secondary driver to evidence that there was in fact another vehicle, it can be difficult to understand if an accident is actually a hit-and-run.
This is the question plaguing investigators after a recent crash in Woburn. According to Massachusetts State Police, authorities are currently questioning the involvement of another vehicle following a fatal motorcycle crash on Interstate 95. This collision occurred just after midnight in the northbound lane of I-95, just north of Exit 35.
When emergency crews arrived at the scene, the male rider was pronounced dead. Authorities are currently investigating the facts and circumstances surrounding the accident, questioning whether another vehicle was involved. This process involves asking the public if there were any witnesses to the crash, examining the accident site and reconstructing the collision.
The reconstruction process can help investigators understand how the crash occurred, and if another vehicle caused the crash. This also helps authorities understand whether or not they should be investigating a hit-and-run. This process can be complex and lengthy; however, it is necessary in order to uncover the cause and liability of a collision.
It can be difficult to navigate life following the death of a loved one. This is especially true when the death suddenly occurred because of an automobile collision. Surviving family members should take the time to explore their rights and options, as legal recourses may be available.
