Commentary on Lauren Richardson, Kennedy Thomas-Young Car Accident in Fort Worth

Lauren Richardson, Kennedy Thomas-Young, Lovo Graves Car Accident Fort Worth, TX

A concern I have with situations like this is people are often quick to assume that the teenagers did something wrong. Teen drivers are statistically more likely to cause wrecks, that's true. But that doesn't mean investigators can just overlook other explanations after a crash like this. It's just as important--perhaps even more so--to make sure the victims' loved ones are getting the full story. Anything from cell phone usage to alcohol to road hazards to sudden mechanical defects can cause a deadly wreck. Jumping to conclusions isn't going to do anyone any good. That's why crashes like this are usually better off in the hands of experienced independent investigators. Are those steps being taken here?
