Fatal Multi-Vehicle Collision Investigation is Underway

The California Highway Patrol is currently investigating the cause of the collision. They will attempt to determine whether drugs or alcohol may have been involved in the case. When three or more cars collide on the roadway, it is considered a multi-vehicle collision. This type of car accident is commonly caused by a “chain reaction” when one car bumps into another, which causes the other to hit the next vehicle.

Multi-vehicle collisions are commonly caused by drunk driving, speeding, and distracted driving. It can be quite challenging to pinpoint liability during a multi-vehicle collision investigation, which is why it is essential to hire an experienced Merced County personal injury attorney to conduct an independent investigation. Attorneys can re-interview important witnesses, review relevant surveillance footage from the scene, and obtain the responsible party’s phone and texting records.
