Commentary on Keith King Accident in Georgetown

Reports sound like this was an unfortunate accident caused by sun glare. Maybe that's really all there was to this, but after decades of work in this field I find myself wondering if there might be any more to the story. Was the glare so direct and so bad that the driver genuinely couldn't tell he wasn't moving the right direction anymore? Did he just continued forward at the same speed, or did he slow down? Did the flip-down visors in the car not help? Did it have any mechanical problems that kept it from stopping or staying on-course? Also, why was the pickup parked on the roadside?

The point isn't to turn the accident into a swamp of questions or make any accusations. It's just important not to fixate on some details and neglect to consider others. Sun glare causes plenty of wrecks, but that in combination with other factors causes far more. In the interest of ensuring the whole story is known, I hope investigators either were or will be more thorough.
