Commentary on Rollover Accident on CR 48 in Big Spring

After a wreck like this folks may be tempted to jump to conclusions based on the few reported details. Realistically this sort of thing usually happens due to driver error--things like speeding, distraction, or in many unfortunate cases drunk driving. That last can be particularly concerning since it could mean a local alcohol provider is liable for the crash if they over-served the victim.

However, just because certain factors are common doesn't mean they can or should be taken for granted. A proper investigation will account for all the possible factors and explanations, even less-likely ones. Things like mechanical issues in the car, tire blowouts, medical emergencies, road hazards, and even other vehicles that left the scene cause deadly wrecks every single day, and each deserves proper consideration.
