With situations like this, it's important steps are taken to ensure the right people are handling the investigations. Quite frankly, police don't always have the experienced and equipment to handle a deadly wreck. Even if folks may think something obvious happened here, like distraction, fatigue, or alcohol, any wreck can involve potentially complex details that require more thorough investigations. Without those investigations, victims and families can easily miss important details. So, are steps being taken here to get this crash the attention it deserves, or will there need to be more thorough independent investigations.
