Commentary on Elke Wieland Sanchez Single-Vehicle Accident in Wood County

With an early morning wreck like this, folks may be quick to jump to conclusions. Even police are likely looking into things like distraction and alcohol. Those are obviously important to consider. Alcohol can be especially crucial since many wrecks like this involve people who were illegally over-served by a bar, and those bars can be liable under dram shop law for contributing to the fatal wreck. But is that really all there is to look into?

Take something relatively uncommon, such as a manufacturing defect. Certainly, those aren't all that common. But they require a lot of experience and state-of-the-art tools to properly investigate. Defects have caused fatal wrecks before, and only through careful examination did those issues come to light. The infamous GM ignition switch defect, for example, reportedly killed over a hundred people. But the public didn't know about the defect for years. How many people read those initial reports and just assumed the victims got themselves killed when, in fact, they had no control over the situation?

Maybe nothing so complex happened here, but it's best to let the evidence speak for itself. Whether this all was due to something common or not, someone lost their life here. Their loved ones at least deserve to know they're getting the full story.
