Commentary on Rollover Accident on US 183 in Austin
When it comes to late night rollovers, it's easy for folks to jump to conclusions. They tend to assume the driver was on their phone, intoxicated, speeding, or fatigued. Those are certainly common factors, and I would never suggest ignoring them. But what if there are unusual circumstances surrounding the crash which authorities don't have experience investigating? Mechanical defects, for example, are relatively uncommon and challenging to investigate. But they do happen, and bringing the to light can both be a help for the victims involved and for the general public that defect could otherwise continue putting in danger. Are steps being taken here to ensure even unlikely possible factors are getting attention here?
