Commentary on Grand Parkway Car Accident in Harris County
After a single-vehicle crash like this I'm often concerned that people will be much too quick to blame the victim. Even police do that prematurely sometimes; for instance, reports about the above accident say the driver took "faulty evasive action," though it's unclear what he might have been evading.
Is it impossible that the driver made a mistake that caused the crash? Of course not. I'm only pointing out that preliminary reports are really just investigators' best guesses about what happened and shouldn't be taken as gospel truth. It's always best to evaluate every possible contributing factor, including things that slip under the radar much too often like vehicle malfunctions or defects.
