Commentary on Larry Carroll Derwacter Single-Vehicle Accident in Lampasas County
With an early morning wreck like this, folks often jump to conclusions. They just assume the driver did something wrong, such as falling asleep at the wheel or driving drunk. These are possibilities worth considering, of course. That's especially true if a local bar is responsible for illegally over-serving the victim.
But just because things like a mechanical defect or medical emergency are uncommon doesn't mean investigators should overlook them. Families deserve to know they're getting the full story, and if authorities aren't being thorough enough to even rule out other possible explanations, important details can slip through the cracks. It remains to be seen, then, if anyone is taking the necessary steps here to get some answers.
