Major Injuries in Vehicle Collision Near Highway 154

Jeeez folks, how could you think it's ok to speculate? Could have swerve to avoid a critter or another driver could have come into his lane and he swerved to avoid them, or maybe he was on his phone, or dui, or fell asleep after spending 2 days gambling and losing money at the casino... Kind of a lot of reasons that could be the cause right?
