Commentary on Kennedi Herndon Pedestrian Accident in Houston
With a situation like this, folks may be quick to jump to conclusions. Early morning accidents in Houston often involve alcohol, and I certainly wouldn't suggest ignoring. That's especially true if the incident was the result of someone being illegally over-served by a bar, since that bar could be liable for their role in the accident.
With that said, these reports barely scratch the surface, so jumping to conclusions isn't going to get people the help they need. There usually needs to be independent investigations to ensure the victim's loved ones are getting the full story. Are the proper steps being taken here to ensure nothing important slips through the cracks?
