Commentary on John Thomas Hardin Car Accident in Howard County

When people read about a late-night single-vehicle wreck, the assumption is usually that the driver must have done something wrong. Maybe that happened here--it's certainly all too common. Investigations can often reveal things like cell phone usage or perhaps a negligent alcohol provider illegally over-serving the driver and being liable under dram shop. But just because other explanations are less common doesn't make them worth overlooking.

Things like mechanical defects, tire failures, medical conditions, missing signage, or even other vehicles that left the scene can cause a tragic accident like this. Without proper investigations from professionals, those details can slip through the cracks. Are steps being taken, then, to ensure that this man's loved ones are getting the answers they deserve?
