Commentary on Pamela Pena Car Accident in Starr County

Folks tend to think that passenger vehicle wrecks aren't all that complex due to how complex they are. With someone crossing the center line, it may seem even more obvious that someone was speeding or on their phone. As likely as those possibilities are, it's important that experienced investigators look into things so nothing important slips through the cracks.

For example, in the evening, one possibility that can create challenging scenarios is alcohol. If someone was at a bar or restaurant and that business illegally over-served them to the point they caused a serious accident, that establishment may need to answer for their actions under dram shop law.

Alternatively, unlikely as it may be, defects with the roadway, lighting, signage, or even the vehicle itself can cause a crash like this. Given how complex and how uncommon that possibility is, authorities rarely have the tools or training to look into. That's when important details start to slip through the cracks.

Like I said, it's possible nothing out of the ordinary led to this tragic event. But someone lost their life. Shouldn't that warrant every possible step to ensure their loved ones are getting the answers they deserve.
