Commentary on Mitchell Escobedo Car Accident in Cameron County

When people read about single-vehicle wrecks, especially early in the morning, they assume the driver did something wrong. Drunk driving, for example, is quite common. Even that, however, can require more thorough investigations. For one, they may have been over-served by a bar, which could make that bar liable for the crash under dram shop law. Alternatively, those independent investigations can show alcohol wasn't a factor, and there were other factors that need to be addressed. Medical conditions, tire failure, mechanical defects, hazardous road design, other vehicles that left the scene--if authorities aren't looking into these things, then they may not be doing a good enough job finding out what happened here.
