Commentary on Mitchell Eltzholtz Car Accident in Denton
Just to be clear, I can't say what exactly happened here because the only information available is in a preliminary crash reports, which I always take with a grain of salt. It's entirely possible all of this happened because someone was in a slow-moving vehicle on the interstate. That's certainly dangerous, especially at night.
It's also possible the slow vehicle was avoidable, and the other driver made a mistake, such as drunk or distracted driving. Those can even be complex, for example if there's a bar liable for over-serving the driver and getting them injured.
It's even possible neither driver really did anything wrong, and there's something important police missed. The goal should be to ensure investigators have the experience and tools to sort through these details and find out for sure.
