As straight-forward as these reports seem, I always tell folks to take initial reports with a grain of salt. That's because more thorough investigations often reveal more information, sometimes making things far more complex legally speaking than the initial reports would suggest. Now, maybe nothing like that would happen here. Continued investigations could simply show that someone made a mistake while traveling through inclement weather conditions. However, did authorities look into unusual possible factors, such as mechanical defects or medical emergencies? Hazardous road design? Faulty airbags or seatbelts? Just because something seems unlikely doesn't mean it's okay to ignore it entirely. The victims and families should at least know they're getting the full story.
