Commentary on Single-Vehicle Accident on FM 1409 in Liberty County

With single vehicle wrecks this early in the morning, people tend to assume the driver was on their phone, tired, or drunk. These are certainly common factors. They can even present unique situations, for example if a bar over-served the driver. That could lead to the bar being liable under dram shop law for their role in the victim's injuries. But just because other possible factors are less common doesn't mean it's okay to ignore them.

Were there mechanical issues? Road hazards? Tire defects? A medical emergency? Another driver that left the scene? Steering wheel or braking issues? A lack of signage or lighting? Anyone of these things can cause and has caused serious wrecks. Without proper investigations, it's easy for authorities to simply overlook these possibilities. That's why a single-vehicle wreck is often better off in the hands of independent investigators. The same could prove true here, as well.
