Commentary on Lubbock Car Accident at 122nd and Frankford
Because there's not much information about what happened here, obviously there can't be that much to say in terms of commentary. I only hope that law enforcement will give the matter the careful attention it deserves; too many times over the years I've seen them go with their "gut instincts" and just point fingers at one driver or the other instead of finding out all a crash's details.
I'm not saying it's impossible that one of the drivers made a mistake, but there are other reasons for vehicles to crash. Bad road or weather conditions, vehicle failures or defects, medical emergencies, and many other variables have to be considered and ruled out. Until that happens it's best not to jump to conclusions, and anyone on the sidelines of the investigation should focus their efforts not on guessing or blaming, but rather on helping the injured victim however possible.
