The police are currently trying to figure out why Hunter’s vehicle crossed the center median. They’re checking his vehicle for any malfunctioning auto parts, and they’re also investigating his state of consciousness. Sometimes accidents occur because drivers fall asleep at the wheel or because they’re driving under the influence. No matter what caused the accident, it’s highly unfortunate that Hunter lost his life. It’s also unfortunate that the 86-year-old is in critical condition. Depending on what the investigation reveals, it’s possible that either a personal injury lawsuit or a wrongful death lawsuit will be filed.
