Commentary on Helena Evans Trail Ride Accident in Centerville
There isn't much information about what happened here, but concerns expressed by family in the news certainly suggest there are serious issues surrounding these kinds of events. One concern, for example, was the possibility of underage drinking.
Was this an organized event? Is there a business out there that is benefiting off of illegally hosting underage drinkers, or perhaps even directly serving them alcohol? Was the person pulling the trailer intoxicated? And how did they manage to pull someone for miles? Is there no system in place for emergencies? There just doesn't seem to be enough oversight if something this awful can happen. Steps should absolutely be taken to get to the bottom of what happened here, who's responsible, and how this sort of thing can be prevented in the future.
