Commentary on Michell Mirshak School Bus Accident in Fort Bend County
There's a lot going on here, but folks seeing a teenager's car crossing into oncoming traffic may be quick to jump to conclusions. The kid was probably on his phone, right? That's obviously possible, and it is true that teenagers are statistically more likely to be at fault for accidents like this. But jumping to conclusions isn't going to help anyone, least of all the victims who need help after the crash. Even if things like tire issues, mechanical defects, road hazards, and other situations are far less common, they still warrant attention. A proper investigation will simply look into all possible factors, bring the evidence to light, and let the facts speak for themselves. Are the authorities doing that here, or does there need to be more thorough investigations?
