Commentary on James Deon Williams METRO Bus Accident in Houston
Police seem to have a clear picture of what happened, but their account seems to lack a few key details. The reports say the car hit the bus after making an evasive maneuver, but they didn't clarify what that evasive maneuver was for. Are officials saying Williams tried to avoid the bus but failed? Or, are they saying Williams hit the bus trying to avoid something else? Was there another vehicle involved here? Was there debris in the road? Sometimes these unclear reports are just poor communication on an officer's part, but sometimes it's a sign the authorities don't really know the full story. It could be that more thorough investigations would show there's more to this situation than initial reports would suggest.
