Commentary on Quinlan Teen Car Accident on Highway 66 in Royse City
It may be alarming to folks to see the possibility of a drunk 16-year-old crashing their car, but I'd caution those folks that police often bring up things like speed and alcohol just because they're common. I can't begin to count the times I looked into similar reports, and police were just speculating. Evidence could show there were other factors entirely that led to the crash.
Now, I wouldn't suggest ignoring those possibilities, of course. With alcohol, for example, there would need to be thorough investigations into who gave a kid alcohol--especially if it was a business. Ultimately, the takeaway here should simply be not to jump to conclusions and to instead ensure as much evidence comes to light as possible so the facts can tell the whole story.
