Commentary on SUV Accident on Preston Rd in Denison

Police seem to think speeding was the key issue in this accident--the driver took a sharp turn too fast and ran off the road. I have no reason to doubt that, and goodness knows far too many accident happen in similar ways. However, I've been at this long enough that I can't help but wonder if that's really the whole story.

People have a tendency to find one thing that could have caused an accident and then heap all the blame on that, rather than look for any other possible issues. For instance, Denison locals say that corner is apparently quite dangerous for unwary drivers. That's no excuse for anyone to speed through a neighborhood, of course, but at the same time if the curve is poorly placed or designed that could need fixing before anyone else is hurt.

That's just one factor of many that still need consideration after this crash, so it's best not to rubber-stamp "speed" on it and move on. Click below to learn more about the importance of a thorough investigation after a single-vehicle wreck.
