Due to the crash, Brown sustained fatal injuries. No other injuries were reported. Police said they are considering talking on the phone and the possibility Brown had been drinking as potential factors in the crash. No further information can be confirmed at this time.

Commentary on Kenni Lee Brown Accident in Dallas

I just want to be clear up front that I don't know anything more about this crash than what's in the reports, but I also don't take reports like this at face value without ensuring there are proper independent investigations. Put simply, there's no telling how thorough police were until it's clear whether or not they looked into all possible contributing factors. Looking at the details they did release, this situation seems to be anything but simple or straight-forward.

One thing which no doubt stands out to folks is the mention of alcohol. That's always important to consider when possible, especially since there could be a local establishment that contributed to the crash by illegally over-serving the driver. Utilizing dram shop law to hold them accountable could be crucial for a family in need of answers. But can authorities actually confirm this? Can the confirm the supposed claim that talking on a cell phone caused this? How thorough were they, and where did they get all of this information?

The reason I say all of this is because there is a big piece of the story missing--the victim's side of the story. They're not around to defend themselves, which is why it's so important to ensure nothing important is slipping through the cracks. Maybe drunk driving and distracted driving led to this tragedy. Maybe it was just alcohol. Or, maybe there were other extenuating factors to consider.

Was the truck well-lit while moving slowly and blocking lanes of travel? Did the victim's brakes and airbags function properly? Is there something wrong with the roadway itself that led to the crash? Was the truck established in its lane, or moving over to the shoulder?

These are just a few questions off the top of my head that experienced investigators would no doubt look into. Again, police maybe already looked into those questions. But if further investigations showed there was more to this than authorities are saying, it certainly wouldn't be the first time. That's why it's important there are steps taken to ensure a man's loved ones at least know they're getting the full story. There isn't enough information available to say for sure if that's happening here.
