Teen Killed Car Accident 50th Street avenue s Lubbock, TX

It's just tragic to see a situation like this, and I hope authorities are truly giving this the attention it deserves. I find too often that teens involved in a serious accident don't often get the benefit of the doubt. A lot of people are quick to just assume the kid was being reckless or inattentive. That can happen, of course. At a certain point, drivers can only be so safe before a collision becomes unavoidable. But if details show that the driver should have been able to avoid the victim, what went wrong here? Are authorities really digging into this and making sure the family is getting the full story? If nothing else, a child losing their life should be worth every effort to get clear answers.
