Commentary on Jordan James, Jacob Skinner Motorcycle Accident in Carrollton

There are two main issues I find are important to address after reports like these. First of all, folks tend to assume any crash early in the morning involves alcohol. Is that possible? Absolutely. It's also crucial to have professionals look into that possibility since it could mean a local bar is liable under dram shop law if they illegally over-served whoever caused the wreck. That's not something the authorities tend to look into on their own.

Secondly, a lot of folks out there are quick to blame motorcyclists. Dangerous motorcyclists exist, but it's a complete misconception that they're all a bunch of daredevils. Whether or not a mistake led to this particular crash, the point is it's best to let the evidence speak for itself. That can be crucial when getting folks the help they need. Are those steps being taken?
