Commentary on Enrique Martinez Accident in San Antonio
Police say speeding is the primary culprit here and may have been why the victim left his lane. That may be true and I have no specific reason to doubt it, but I've been in this business long enough to know that preliminary reports should be taken with a grain or two of salt. I've seen many instances where police impressions were incomplete or even wholly mistaken.
Many people, police sometimes included, are tempted to just blame a driver for a single-vehicle wreck and think no more of it. While it's true that driver mistakes cause many such crashes, they can't be taken for granted or assumed. Other factors, things out of the drivers' control, also contribute to them and a proper investigation will take them into account.
