Commentary on Round Rock Pedestrian Accident

Right now there are still far too many unfilled blanks about this incident for anyone to say why things went the way they did. How did the two vehicles collide? Where did both drivers come from and where were they headed? Images show that's a light-controlled intersection, so did one run a red light or try to beat a yellow? Were they both awake, alert, and paying attention? Did someone's brakes fail? Where was the pedestrian in relation to the crash, and how exactly did one of the vehicles hit them?

That's only a few of the many questions that still need answers here. I'm sure some of them will be resolved during a police investigation, but I'm concerned that all of them and others may not be. Law enforcement looks over a crash long enough to figure out a rough sketch of events and whether any specific laws were broken, but it's not often their priority to figure out precisely how and why things went the way they did. That information can be invaluable to victims and their loved ones as they try to make sense of serious or fatal wrecks.

If police don't plan to dig deep and find some real answers for the people affected, those folks may be better served by independent investigations. At the very least they deserve to know every effort was made to find the truth. Anything beyond that would depend on what is learned.
