Commentary on Motorcycle Accident on Loyola Lane in Austin
It's not entirely clear what went wrong here, but a lot of people are quick to blame the driver after reports like this. Quite frankly, that's usually what happened. Things like speeding, distracted driving, and intoxication are all too common. I wouldn't suggest ignoring those possibilities, especially since they can involve complex legal avenues to get folks the help they need. That said, less likely factors also need to be considered. Things like mechanical issues, tire blowouts, road hazards, and even other drivers that left the scene are less likely, but they do cause serious wrecks. Are the proper steps being taken here to make sure the exact cause of the crash is made clear?
