A law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation tells The Associated Press the car lost control due to “speed, and speed alone.” The official requested anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly. The investigation also ruled out debris in the roadway as causing the car in which Walker was a passenger to smash into a light pole and tree. The Nov. 30 crash killed Walker and the driver, his friend and financial adviser Roger Rodas. Investigators won’t set a firm speed at which they think the car was traveling until Porsche engineers come to California next month to extract information from on-board data collectors.

McBride was bleeding and pressing her hands to her head, Beasley testified. She couldnt find her phone. She was patting her pockets. She just kept saying she wanted to get home, Beasley said. Beasley went back into her house to call an ambulance, but McBride had walked away again by the time help arrived. McBride was discombobulated and appeared to be in a confused state of not knowing where she was and not being able to give a phone number or anything, said Beasley, who believed the young woman was drunk.

These are just a few potential questions your client will need to answer. Elements such as the weather and location of the accident are also very important. Finally, the client (or their passengers) needs to take as many pictures as possible. Pictures need to be taken of both cars (from all angles) and of the area surrounding the accident. 2. Dont Admit Fault One of the biggest impediments to receiving repayments and insurance payouts is unknowingly admitting guilt and responsibility for the accident. Its important for the client to be sensitive and considerate at the scene, but advise them to never say or imply that the accident was their fault. Even if the client thinks they are indeed at fault, there may have been unseen factors that contributed to the collision. Even a simple Im sorry could put their case at risk. Additionally, the client must not sign or agree to anything before speaking to you, the lawyer. They should not speak to the other drivers insurance agency, sign any forms or paperwork, or agree to meet at another location to sort out the details. All of these situations could potentially be dangerous to the client and to the validity of their case. 3. Gather Information While making notes about the accident was more of a subjective exercise, the client also needs to record some cold hard facts.
