Commentary on Rollover Accident at Loop 289 & Idalou in Lubbock
I often see people will read about crashes like this and just assume the driver did something wrong. Quite frankly, that's the most likely explanation, especially with things as common as distracted or drunk driving.
This could even be one of the many complex situations where a bar illegally over-served someone where that bar can be held liable under dram shop law, which is not the sort of thing authorities tend to look into.
But just because other factors are less common does not mean it's okay tom ignore them. Mechanical issues, road hazards, tire failures, defects, medical conditions--considering all of these possibilities helps to ensure victims and families have every possible opportunity to get the help they need.
