Commentary on Car Accident on TX-87 in Deweyville

Folks tend to see a rear-end collision and simply assume the rear driver did something wrong. That's often true, considering how regularly things like speeding, following too closely, and distracted driving are found to cause a crash like this. Even police seem to be on that bandwagon, as investigators think the victim might have been speeding. However, it's irresponsible to jump to any conclusions without conducting more thorough investigations.

Other contributing elements could have been overlooked at first glance. For example, what if the truck driver braked suddenly ahead of the victim? Would that abrupt change in speed be ignored even though it may have caused the victim to rear-end the truck? Of course not.

The law is nuanced enough to consider all the factors that led to a crash, which is why thorough investigations are so important in these situations. Will law enforcement put in the necessary work to be sure the whole story is known, or should independent investigators take another look?
