With a crash this serious, it's crucial to ensure the right people are looking into things. I can't begin to count how many times police reports came across my desk which did little else but look at cell phones and alcohol. Those are important and common factors, but what about mechanical issues? Speeds? Airbags and seatbelts? Road conditions? Visibility issues? Even unlikely possible factors warrant attention when it comes to getting families the answers they deserve. I can't help wondering if the proper steps are being taken here to see that happens.
