Commentary on Johnson Way Car Accident in Comal County
After a single-vehicle crash like this I'm often concerned that people too-quickly blame the victim. Even police do that prematurely sometimes; for instance, reports about the above accident say the driver was speeding and took "faulty evasive action"--a common term for steering out of control.
Am I saying those didn't happen? Not at all; both are commonly involved in many solo wrecks. However, I also know from long experience that there's often more to the story that gets overlooked in favor of a neatly-wrapped explanation like that. Plenty of other things could have contributed to the crash, including several issues that fly under a police investigator's radar way too often like vehicle defects or malfunctions.
