Commentary on Christopher Allen Nance Alleged DWI Accident in Humble
Something I say a lot on this blog is how extenuating circumstances always warrant attention after a serious crash. But what about this accident? Police say the driver was on drugs. Is there really more to this? Well, maybe not, but maybe so. How can anyone be sure unless there's been a proper investigation. If police just assume this all was drug-related, they could very easily overlook extenuating circumstances. Regardless of the current details, people were seriously hurt here. Even if it's just to confirm what police already know, that may warrant more thorough investigations.
