Commentary on Rollover Accident on TX-146 in Moss Hill

I often find myself reminding people not to jump to any conclusions after single-vehicle wrecks like the one in Moss Hill. There's an unfortunate tendency to assume the driver in a wreck like the one on Highway 146 is to blame without giving the matter much further thought.

Is it possible the driver made a mistake? Of course. Issues like phone use, speeding, and impairment are so common that they should always be considered. Alcohol's a particularly important factor to look into because if the driver was over-served then the place that did so might be liable for his fatal injuries under Texas dram shop law.

However, just because the above issues are common doesn't mean they can be taken for granted. Less-likely possibilities like mechanical defects, roadway hazards, medical emergencies, and even other vehicles that left the scene should also be evaluated to make sure the truth is found.

If nothing else, taking steps to ensure the crash is properly understood is crucial for everyone affected by it. If there are any steps beyond getting the victim's loved ones the truth, that will depend on what the truth turns out to be.
