Commentary

Given how little information has been released regarding this crash, I don't want to engage in irresponsible speculation about what might have caused it. However, what I can speak to with significantly more certainty, based on my long experience with wrecks where there turned out to be more to the story, is that single-vehicle accidents rarely get the attention they deserve from police. From their perspective, this probably makes sense; they only have so many investigative resources to go around, and everyone they have looking into a collision where there's probably no criminal charge is someone who isn't hunting down burglars or drug dealers.

However, given the wide variety of potential factors that could have contributed to whatever injuries this driver could have suffered, including a mechanical issue with his car, it deserves a full outside investigation. If a vehicle manufacturer or other party turns out to bear some of the responsibility for this crash, that will be the first step towards ensuring that they're held accountable.
