Commentary on Single-Vehicle Rollover Accident on FM 1585 in Lubbock
It's not clear what happened here, though folks are no doubt content to just blame the driver and move on. After all, this sort of thing usually involves people speeding, on their phones, or intoxicated after being over-served at a local establishment (which is still important to look into considering the possibility that potential establishment could be liable for the crash). But things aren't always so simple. Factors like mechanical defects, tire blowouts, road hazards, and even other reckless drivers who left the scene aren't all that common, but they do happen. Police don't always have the means to bring those details to light, which is why getting clear answers can often require more thorough independent investigations. Are those steps being taken here?
