Commentary on Jeffrey Wadley Motorcycle Accident in Collingsworth County

There may be two singificant challenges surrounding this crash given what I've encountered looking into similar crashes throughout my career. For one, a late night crash is going to bring speculation of alcohol. That's certainly common and worth looking into. That's especially true considering the possibility of dram shop law, which says bars can be liable if they illegally over-serve someone and cause an accident. Secondly, people are quick to assume motorcyclists are all reckless drivers, so they must have done something wrong to cause the crash.

Put simply, as possible as both of those scenarios are, it's outright irresponsible to jump to conclusions. I can't count how many times folks immediately blamed a motorcyclist only for more thorough investigations to show that something like a tire defect, road hazards, or some other reckless driver that left the scene caused the crash. Additionally, as common as alcohol is, it's still just one possibility. Considering other possibilities is crucial for ensuring nothing important slips through the cracks.

The question, then, is whether or not steps are being taken to give this accident the attention it deserves. Otherwise, there could be important information slipping through the cracks. Perhaps independent investigations would show there's a lot more to this story.
