Commentary on Susan Marie Vargas Transit Bus Accident in San Antonio

Susan Marie Vargas Transit Bus Accident San Antonio TX

It's entirely possible that this was all just the result of a momentary lapse in judgment, as is commonly the case. However, I think it's worth noting that authorities say the victim didn't stop in time, rather than saying she flat out ran the light. Additionally, the listing distraction as a potential factor could be speculation based on similar wrecks rather than actual evidence. This is one of the reasons I advocate for thorough independent investigations after a serious wreck like this. Is it possible police know everything there is to know already? Of course. Is it possible more thorough investigations reveal something unusual (a mechanical defect, for example) caused the crash? Absolutely. They is making sure that investigators at least consider those possibilities to make sure those hurt in the crash have every opportunity to get the help they need.
