The results of the investigation will deduce why exactly Natividad shifted into the southbound lanes instead of staying north in his own directed lane. Bringing in an Engine Control Module (ECM) will be vital to the investigation, since it will record whether or not Natividad made an attempt to stop his vehicle before drifting into the opposite lane. Usually for wrong-way collisions, lack of sleep, intoxication, or distracted driving are big influencers as to why these kinds of accidents occur.
