Commentary on Car Accident on Jaime Zapata in Laredo
It's not clear what happened here, and maybe that's just due to police withholding specific details. But it wouldn't be the first time authorities didn't give a serious crash the attention it deserved. I can't begin to count how many times victims and families came to us with crashes where police simply moved on to other responsibilities without providing any answers. That's why independent investigations are often crucial following a serious accident, and it's not likely this crash is somehow the exception.
