Commentary on Jennalyn Yeager Car Accident in Madison County

As straight-forward as these reports may seem, it's important to understand just how preliminary the reports likely are. More often than not, a report like this is little more than an officer's best guess at what happened. Maybe this is all based on video evidence or numerous witnesses. Maybe authorities here were experienced and well equipped. It could also be, however, that there were unusual circumstances police overlooked.

For example, there was a crash I learned about a while ago where police accused someone of running a stop sign that wasn't even there. It turned out TxDOT had removed that stop sign and forgot to replace it. As unusual as that is, it's one of many examples that show why independent investigations are so important. If a crash taking the life of a teenager isn't a situation worth being thorough as possible, what would be?
