Commentary on Single-Vehicle Accident on 4th St in Lubbock

With single-vehicle wrecks, I often have to remind people not to jump to conclusions. Some folks tend to assume the driver must have done something wrong if theirs was the only vehicle to crash.

Does driver error commonly cause these wrecks? Sure. Things like distraction, speeding, and impairment are always worth consideration. Alcohol is especially important to consider in case a local alcohol provider is liable for the crash due to over-serving the driver. However, even less-likely issues like mechanical defects, roadway hazards, medical emergencies, and even other vehicles that left the scene are also worth consideration.

If nothing else, taking steps to ensure real answers are found is crucial following just about any wreck. I see no reason why this crash would be an exception that that.
