Commentary on Wanda Kendrick Accident in Midland

Reports suggest this accident, while tragic, may be largely because the victim didn't stop at that intersection. Maybe that's really all there is to it, but rather than shrug and take that at face value it would likely be best to look more carefully for any other possible factors.

Some may roll their eyes at that, but the fact is that unusual elements contribute to accidents all the time. They just often go unnoticed as the public and investigators alike point fingers at something more common, like failure to yield. What if there's more to it?

Here's an example of what I mean: Not long ago in West Texas a man was T-boned by an 18-wheeler at an intersection. Investigators did a brief once-over and said the victim ran a stop sign, meaning his fatal injuries were his own fault.

That was the accepted story for weeks until independent accident reconstruction experts took another look. They learned the intersection's stop signs were removed by TxDOT road crews for construction, meaning the victim didn't know he had to stop there before the collision. With that information in hand it became clear the wrong person took the blame in preliminary reports.

That situation was unusual, but things like it happen all the time. Unless unless the right set of eyes looks again the wrong explanation often gets taken for the right one. If there's any confusion or doubt about what happened in Midland, the victim's loved ones may want to have an independent expert look again.
