Highway 99 accident in Fresno claims 6 lives

July 22, 2010--This morning's massive accident on Highway 99 in Fresno took the lives of 6 victims including a bus driver.  According to the LA Times, few details have yet emerged.  In a case like this the CHP reports can be delayed for 6 to 12 months.  In the meantime vehicles are repaired or salvaged, skids marks dissipate and witnesses return to their daily lives.  Families of victims can protect their rights by retaining expert engineers to review physical evidence right away, downloading the event data recorders for each air bag, obtaining the face page of the CHP report within a couple of days, determining the reason for an SUV being overturned in the roadway in the first place, etc.  Roadway defects need to be eliminated as a possible contributing factor in causing this accident and finally, will perception/reaction experts support the view that the bus driver did all in his power ot prevent this tragedy?
