Commentary on Gionni Garrett Car Accident in Houston
Right now, the cause of the crash isn't clear. But when someone goes through a red light late at night, it's bound to raise some red flags. I certainly wouldn't suggest overlooking possibilities such as distracted or drunk driving. Drunk driving is especially common in Harris County, which is why it would even be important to find out if a local bar is responsible for contributing to this crash because they illegally over-served the victim.
But just because those causes are common doesn't mean they're the only ones worth investigating. People are always so quick to blame someone they overlook the fact that drivers aren't always able to control the factors that lead to accidents. For all we know, this was some unusual brake failure that the driver had no control over. The key is to ensure the investigators handling the crash understand this and leave no stone unturned trying to get the victim's family some answers.
