Commentary on Single-Vehicle Accident at Marbach in San Antonio
This early in the morning, people are no doubt going to have some ideas in mind about what may have happened here. Part of that is due to single-vehicle wrecks usually being the result of driver error. At 2:00 a.m. especially, alcohol is also all too common. That's certainly important to look into, considering there could also be a local alcohol provider responsible for this incident under dram shop law if they illegally over-served the victim. But are authorities truly giving this situation the attention it deserves?
While driver error is very common in a crash like this, it's not the only reason for a single-vehicle wreck like this. Were there mechanical defects? Tire issues? Road hazards? A medical emergency? Did some other reckless driver cause the crash and leave the scene? When someone has critical injuries, they aren't always able to tell their side of the story right away. That's just another reason situations like this warrant thorough independent investigations. Making sure all possible factors get attention is crucial for getting folks the help they deserve.
