Commentary on Edward Rozum, Antonio Almaguer Motorcycle Accident in Austin

With nothing but preliminary reports to go off of, it's not unusual to have unconfirmed factors surrounding a serious crash. That's one of the reasons I always rely on independent investigations even when things some straight-forward. Something as seemingly obvious as drunk driving, for example, can actually lead to dram shop law, which says that alcohol providers can be responsible for contributing to an accident if they illegally over-served someone. That's not to mention other less likely possibilities, like road defects and mechanical issues.

Ultimately, my real concern is if the authorities are even giving this incident the attention it deserves. Quite frankly, folks are quick to blame motorcyclists, evidence or not. While they can certainly make mistakes, many people will just assume the motorcyclist did something wrong without actually digging into the details. Maybe the authorities here are more prudent than that, but if getting answers required more thorough independent investigations, it certainly wouldn't be the first time.
