Commentary on Single-Vehicle Accident on FM 492 in Hidalgo County

This early in the morning, people are often quick to assume the driver in a single-vehicle wreck did something wrong. Things like distraction, fatigue, and alcohol are certainly common, and they warrant investigation. That's especially true with things like dram shop law, which gives victims an opportunity to hold a bar liable for their injuries if that establishment illegally over-served the driver. But that's still just one possibility. Are the authorities being thorough enough to consider other possibilities? From mechanical defects to road hazards to even other vehicles that left the scene, I've looked into plenty of crashes where it turned out authorities missed something important. That's why it's usually more prudent for there to be independent investigations, and the same could prove true here, as well.
