Commentary on Car Accident on Hammerly Drive in Houston
With early reports like these, it gets a bit too east for folks to start jumping to conclusions. They see someone read end another vehicle at a red light, and they just assume that driver must have been doing something wrong. Is that possible? Of course. In fact, that's pretty darn likely. But it's also possible something unusual like a mechanical defect or road hazards contributed to the crash. Perhaps things like brakes, seatbelts, or airbags didn't function properly. Even if something seems unlikely, the evidence should be allowed to speak for itself. It remains to be seen if authorities actually took the steps to get that evidence or if the crash would be better off in the hands of more experienced investigators.
