Commentary on Adrian and Aaron White Accident in Crane County

Given what early reports say about this incident some folks are probably ready to jump to conclusions without waiting for more. I don't particularly doubt what the news said, but it's always best to take preliminary reports with a grain or two of salt.

For instance, it's certainly best not to jump to any conclusions about why the young driver might have fled from police as reports suggest. Even there was chase, no one is really in a position to say why just yet. It could all boil down to a simple misunderstanding, or maybe it was due to something unusual no one could understand just from the details in early news reports.

Statistically speaking, most drivers run away from traffic stops or law enforcement because they have something to hide. That might be illegal contraband in the car, outstanding warrants, expired paperwork like registration or licenses, or in more than a few cases driving while intoxicated (which sometimes means a local bar is liable for the damage done under dram shop law). The explanation doesn't have to be any of those, but they cause the majority of situations that start--and tragically end--this way.

I'm not claiming to know more than what reports currently say. It's just important before any conclusions are reached to consider all the possible explanations for what occurred. If there are other steps to take, knowing that would largely depend on what is learned. Will authorities give the accident the thorough attention it deserves?
