Commentary on Barry Williams Rollover Accident in Houston
With single-vehicle wrecks like this, it's easy enough for people to jump to conclusions. Things like alcohol, distraction, and speeding are all pretty common. It could even turn out that a local bar over-served the driver and is liable for the crash under dram shop law. But it's also important that investigators look into less common factors. Were there mechanical issues? Medical conditions? Road hazards? Another driver that left the scene? At the end of the day, someone lost their life here. That warrants every possible step to get their loved ones the answers they deserve.
