Commentary on Erin Lee Williams Car Accident in Grayson County
When it comes to single-vehicle wrecks, a challenge not many people consider is authorities who are hasty in their investigations. Just to be clear, I can't say what did or didn't happen here nor whether or not the authorities did a proper job. That said, it's important to consider having independent investigators look into any serious accident.
From speeding to tire blowouts to mechanical defects to alcohol to poor road design, anything can cause a serious crash like this. I can't begin to count how many times folks came to me with police reports which were either misleading or incomplete. Maybe the same thing would prove true here, but it takes proper investigations to be certain, and it's unclear if those steps were ever taken here. Doing so could go a long way in exploring potential avenues to get these folks the help they need.
