Commentary on Pedro Esparza Single-Vehicle Accident in Navarro County
This late at night, it's not surprising when police look into things like fatigue, alcohol, and speed. Those are certainly common, and I wouldn't suggest ignoring them. That's especially true when someone crashes because a local bar illegally over-served them, since that bar can be liable. But what about less common factors? Mechanical issues, medical emergencies, tire defects, road hazards--even if something seems unlikely, it still warrants consideration. Otherwise, important details can slip through the cracks. Did authorities give this incident the attention it deserves, or will getting the full story mean conducting more thorough independent investigations?
