Commentary on Raul Julian Ramos, Abigail Marie Ramos Truck Accident in Falls County
When folks see a car lose control like this, they tend to assume the driver was on their phone, fatigued, speeding, or drunk. Those are all possibilities that warrant attention, but those are the kinds of things one typically sees late at night or early in the morning. Though possible, could it be something else happened? Was there a tire blowout? A steering column failure? Road hazards? A medical emergency? Some other unforeseeable defect?
Unlikely as they may be, there are factors the authorities tend to overlook which warrant attention. Considering the absolute devastation of a crash like this, I see no reason not to take every possible step to ensure the victims' loved ones at least know they're getting all the facts. Are those steps being taken here?
