Commentary on Car Accident near 4th and Quaker in Lubbock
Nobody knows what happened here yet, but that probably won't stop speculation from running rampant in some comment sections. After car crashes without clear explanations I often see guesses about someone speeding, failing to yield, looking at a phone, or even driving drunk. Commenters aren't bothered about pesky things like "investigation" or "evidence," just keen to get their hot takes on record.
Luckily the law is a little more cool-headed about these things. Prudent investigators will probably look into the possibilities I mentioned simply because they're very common in car accidents, but they'll also look further in case something unusual was involved.
For all anyone can say right now one driver or the other lost control on a wet road or due to a vehicle malfunction. There are plenty of reasons one car could hit another aside from the "greatest hits," so it's important to be thorough. At the very least the people hurt in the crash deserve the whole truth about how it happened. Anything beyond that would probably depend on what that truth turns out to be.
