Commentary on Keriesha McConnell, Jordan Perry, Abraham Moriera Car Accident in Houston
Considering authorities initially suggested that the victims were okay only for them to end up dying, I can't help wondering if authorities really have a grasp on what happened here. Even the more recent details do little to really provide answers. Often, I'll have families come to me with accidents they assumed police would investigate thoroughly only to find they were completely left in the dark and forgotten about.
That's one of the reasons I do my best to ensure people know the importance of independent investigations after a devastating wreck like this. Whatever comes next for a victim's loved ones, the path forward requires knowing the facts. Steps must be taken to ensure the people in charge of getting those facts will actually give the incident the attention it deserves. Are those steps being taken here?
