Commentary on Car Accident on FM 78 in Kirby

With single-vehicle wrecks like this, it's much too easy for people to jump to conclusions. Things like distraction, impairment, and speeding are all pretty common, so people have a tendency to blame every similar wreck on one or more of them. They're all worth investigating; it could even turn out that a local bar over-served the driver and is liable for the crash under dram shop law.

However, it's important that investigators look into less-common factors as well. Did the victim's vehicle have mechanical issues? Did they have a medical condition? Was the road hazardous? Was anyone else around or involved and just left the scene?

Some may roll their eyes and just see an attorney looking for someone to blame, but that's not the point. Someone's life was cut short here, and that fact alone warrants taking every possible step to get their loved ones the answers they deserve.
