Commentary on Motorcycle, Truck Accident on Avenue Q in Lubbock

Whenever I talk about taking reports with a grain of salt and always making sure authorities didn't overlook anything, I often have folks scoff when it comes to crashes like the one described here. Police say someone fleeing authorities ran a red light and crashed. Not much more to tell there, right? Well, maybe that's true. But whatever mistakes did or didn't lead to this crash, there are likely folks out there who lost their loved one. Don't they deserve to know they're getting the full story, even if that story is that their loved one screwed up?

That's what independent investigations are for. Over the years, I've looked into cases where it turned out authorities were entirely wrong or left out crucial details. I've also had cases where independent investigations simply confirmed would police already knew. In either situation, a family knowing they have the whole story is a crucial step forward. Whether they can hold someone accountable or simply get to have some closure, knowing the facts always needs to be a priority.

I've seen too many shoddy initial reports to take reports like these at face value. That's why even with reports like this, I still believe there could be reasons to investigate things more thoroughly. Were those steps ever considered?
