Media reports are filled often with horrifying details of tragic fatal car accidents. However, the cause of a car accident may not be as obvious. In order to provide answers to the authorities and surviving family members, investigators gather evidence, interview witnesses and piece together what they learn. In the meantime, families of victims comfort one another and sometimes are forced to plan the funeral of their deceased loved ones, as they wait to know the reason behind their pain and loss.
This was the case in a recent accident that occurred when a veteran taxi driver and a grandmother died in a crash on the Long Island Expressway.
