Commentary on Car Accident on Highway 16 South in Bexar County

After single-vehicle crashes I know some folks jump to blame common causes like speeding, distraction from a cell phone, or—for the cynics—intoxication. None of those have to be involved here, of course, but they're often quickly blamed for accidents like this because of how many others they cause.

Sometimes further investigations confirm one or more of those factors was involved, but other times it's learned something far different was to blame. Vehicle malfunctions, hazardous roads, or even medical episodes can and do cause wrecks every day, but they're often overlooked as everyone's eyes remain fixed on things like alcohol or speeding.

That's one of the reasons that careful independent investigations are so important. For people to get the help they need, they must have the clear facts backed up by evidence. Whether it's catching a complex mechanical issue, tracking down a bar that illegally over-served someone, identifying defects in the roadway, or showing that any number of other factors contributed to the crash, simply relying on a preliminary crash report isn't likely to get folks the answers they need.
