Commentary on Fatal Car Accident at Loop 338 & Grandview in Odessa
This soon after a serious crash, it's not too unusual for there to be few details. The key is to make sure people aren't going around jumping to conclusions. This early in the morning, it is certainly more common to see things like fatigue, distraction, or drunk driving. Those are important to consider, especially alcohol if someone was illegally over-served by a local bar. Considering the Midland-Odessa area happens to have just about the worst rate of drunk driving in the whole state, it would be prudent to consider these possibilities. However, it's also important to consider even unlikely possibilities, such as tire blowouts, road hazards, medical conditions, manufacturing defects, etc. That's why deadly wrecks are generally better off in the hands of professionals who have the experience and tools to look into these things thoroughly.
