Commentary on Bay City Man Rollover Accident on FM 1728 in Matagorda County
With single-vehicle wrecks like this, I find too often that authorities don't give the victim much benefit of the doubt. They don't tend to consider unlikely, extenuating circumstances such as mechanical issues or road defects. As unlikely as some factors may be, getting folks the help they need should always be a priority. Even if the victim did do something wrong, there could be important factors to address. Drunk driving, for example, can involve a negligent alcohol provider liable under dram shop law if they over-served the driver. Am I saying that happened here? Not at all. I just don't see much to give me confidence that authorities really gave this crash the thorough investigation it deserves.
