I see Mexitrucks in the picture clearly at fault.


A traffic collision, also called a motor vehicle collision among other terms, occurs when a vehicle collides with another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, road debris, or other stationary obstruction, such as a tree, pole or building. Traffic collisions often result in injury, death, and property damage. Stay tuned for the rest of the story, if it comes along . [censored]


I have a funny feeling that the white car is at fault and why is the news organization flying drones over police incidents when it clearly states in the FAA drone regulations you can not do this at all ???


I'm a FAA certified drone pilot. There is no blanket prohibition from flying near or over an accident site. Only if manned aircraft are in the area and then interference is unlawful. Recreational users are discouraged from doing so because they don't usually know how to avoid interference.
