Commentary on Darnell Williams Dirt Bike Accident in Houston
It's not entirely clear what happened here, but that may not stop some folks from jumping to all kinds of conclusions.
Frankly, people tend to blame motorcyclists after any crash like this because they just assume the victim was doing something wrong. That's possible, of course, but what about less common factors? Mechanical issues, defective tires, road hazards, other reckless drivers that left the scene--I've seen just about every possible factor come to light following more thorough independent investigations. It's possible similar efforts could show there is more to this story the victim's loved ones deserve to know.
