Commentary on Leroy Johnson Car Accident in Montgomery County
While there isn't much information about what happened here, some folks may feel content to jump to conclusions. After all, a crash early in the morning is usually the result of things like fatigue or intoxication. Those are worth looking into, especially considering the possibility some local alcohol provider broke the law and over-served the victim and is liable for their role in the crash. But what about less common factors? Mechanical issues, tire defects, road hazards, other drivers that left the scene, a medical emergency--even if something seems unlikely, a grieving family deserves to know they're getting the full story. Are those steps being taken here?
