Commentary on Dalvin Henderson Accident in Fort Worth
After single-vehicle wrecks I often have to remind people not to jump to conclusions. It's much too tempting to assume that the driver did something wrong and move on without giving the matter much further thought.
Could that be right? Sure. Operator errors like distraction, speeding, and alcohol are so common that they're likely to be considered after most solo crashes if only to rule them out. Alcohol in particular is especially important to look into because a local bar or other vendor could be responsible for the victim's fatal injuries under dram shop law.
However, even less-likely (but still possible) factors like mechanical defects, road hazards, medical conditions, and even other vehicles that left the scene also deserve careful attention. If nothing else, taking steps to ensure the victim's grieving family gets real answers is crucial. Will police spend enough time and care to make sure that happens?
