Commentary on Arthur Taylor Jr. Car Accident in McKinney
There are all kinds of reasons a crash like this can happen, and quite frankly the authorities don't always get the facts straight. That's why even when they seem to issue clear reports, I take their word with a grain of salt.
I can't begin to count how many times crashes ended up involving extenuating circumstances authorities overlooked. There can be mechanical issues, actions from another driver involved that went unnoticed, bars illegally over-serving someone and being liable for their role in the crash, poor road maintenance or lack of signage, etc. Even if something seems unlikely, the point is that people in need of help need evidence to get that help. Maybe authorities here have been thorough, but I see no reason why I wouldn't want there to be an independent investigation into any crash like the one described here.
