Commentary on Tammy Hamilton, Tausha Redic Accident in Henderson County
The circumstances leading up to a wreck like this can drastically alter what happens after it, which is why it's important to find out why one driver allegedly crossed the center line. Was she distracted by something? If so, what? Did she have a medical emergency? Did the car lose traction or blow a tire? Could it have had a mechanical malfunction or defect that sent it off-course? What were road and weather conditions like in the area? Once the other driver has a chance to heal, could she shed any light on how things happened? Were there any other witnesses?
The point of digging deep and trying to learn exactly what happened isn't to overcomplicate things or point fingers. I read the same reports as everyone else, and it's their vagueness that makes it clear more work is needed. At the very least everyone affected by this terrible incident deserves clarification about its circumstances; anything beyond bringing them answers would probably depend on what is learned through rigorous investigation.
