Commentary on Ricardo Ramirez Moped Accident in Lubbock
There isn't much information available about this crash, and I can only hope that's due to reservation from police. Too often, it's a sign they're not really giving the accident the attention it deserves. Now, a crash like this may not seem like it would be complex, but there are plenty of scenarios that authorities alone aren't always equipped to handle. For example, alcohol is a common factor in deadly wrecks. That can lead to dram shop law, which says alcohol providers such as bars and restaurants can be liable. Did authorities look into that? Did they consider mechanical issues? Medical emergencies? Road hazards? Fatigue or distraction? These are all possible and therefore worth attention if a family is going to get the answers they deserve.
