Commentary on Car Accident on Research Blvd in Austin

Right now there are quite a few important details missing from reports. That could mean investigators are just playing things close to the vest until they have a better understanding, or it could mean they really don't know yet what they're looking at. I'm not coming down on them for not having all the answers right away, but I hope they're able to make some sense out of this soon.

There are a lot of lingering questions still, like: What caused the victim to pull over? Once there, why did she get out? How visible was the Mercury on the edge of the ramp? Reports say its hazards were on, but does that stretch of road have streetlights or lighting from nearby businesses? The Toyota driver reportedly started to slow after seeing the Mercury, but did she not notice the victim in the road? If not, why not? Where were the Toyota driver and the victim before they ended up on the ramp?

None of those questions or the many others like them are meant to point fingers or say I know more than what reports can tell. It's just important to be thorough and learn all the details, both to ensure everyone's on the same page and to start figuring out whether issues of accountability should be resolved.

At its core this could just be a terrible accident where nobody is to blame, but the best way to know that for sure is to learn all the relevant facts. The people affected it by it deserve to know that no stone was left unturned while seeking out the full story. Will that kind of care and effort be taken here?
