This report tells us very little about the assignment of fault if any. Obviously witness statements will be necessary along with an accident reconstruction especially the measure of skid marks to know speeds and accident collision avoidance measures taken, if any.

Blood work will tell us something about the drivers’ condition and if any had been drinking or doing anything else that would impair their judgment about safe driving.

Motorcycle accidents are never easy to investigate especially when one rider is killed. It’s an interesting case, with plenty of work to be done to conclude the legal issues about personal injury compensation.
