Commentary on Cannon Rush Accident on FM 2957 near Hallsburg

After crashes like this, folks are often quick to jump to conclusions since single-vehicle wrecks are commonly due to driver error. That possibility can't be dismissed here, as things like speeding or distraction might have played a part in the pickup leaving the roadway. In some circumstances there are even questions of impairment to address, which is important to consider because it might mean a local business violated dram shop law and should be held responsible for the damage done. None of those have to be factors, of course, but they're all common enough that they'll probably be considered if only to rule them out.

Just as investigators can't ignore possibilities that might reflect poorly on the victim, though, they also can't overlook other potential factors even if they seem unlikely. A sudden mechanical failure, for example, isn't all that common but vehicle issues cause wrecks every day all over the world. A crash caused by texting and one caused by brake failure might look the same from the outside but they would have very different implications.

Without proper investigations, some possible contributing factors might slip through the cracks. Are police taking steps to get all the available answers here, or would that kind of care require more thorough, independent investigations?
