Commentary on Jermaine Alexander Car Accident in Smith County

With single vehicle wrecks like this, it's a bit too easy for folks to jump to all kinds of conclusions. They just assume the driver did something wrong. As possible--and even as likely--as that is, it would be irresponsible not to consider other possible factors.

Could it be that something like alcohol, cell phone usage, or speeding contributed to the crash? Absolutely. That can even raise complex situations like dram shop law, which involves holding bars accountable for illegally over-serving someone and contributing to a crash. But what about something like a mechanical defect? A tire blowout? A medical emergency? Road hazards or a lack of signage or lighting? Some other driver that left the scene?

Even if something seems unlikely, getting folks the help they need means knowing the whole story. It's not often a preliminary report like this truly tells that whole story, which is why independent investigations are often a more prudent path forward.
